I just put the first of many coats of oil on these stools. But here they are without a nice fancy back drop. ( those pictures to come later.) I went with a solid seat to make the whole thing stronger and I think it looks alot nicer. What do you think? Anyways I have to get back to work to get them ready for the exhibition on Friday.

Beautiful work, Kaleo! I think my favorite detail is how the front edge of the top rails are only partially rounded to exactly follow the line of the seat above. Nice touch! I would have just rounded those puppies right off, and in the process I would have lost the tiny detail that so strengthens the relationship between the parts. I love your designs!

Very pretty and inventive as well. They almost seem to defy the laws of physics. Whoever sits on them must first be very trusting of you joinery skills. :-)

The seat at the top is a nice touch with its simplicity and it looks comfortable as well.

These look really great. The contrast between the seat and body and the way the seats appear to ‘float’ are pretty eye catching. Congrats on a great design!!

Did you see the Woodcraft Magazine from May 2007? The had a zigzag chair in there, built with the Festool Domino . It kind of reminds me of your chair, but of course the angles are greatly exaggerated (z shape). It was built by David Dundas. It looks strong, as he shows three people standing on it and it does not break.

Anyway, good job on your chair.
