    Adirondack style bar stools, comfortable and unlike regular Adirondack chairs easy in and out of. going to be used outside so used treated lumber but selected only pieces with no knots, had to go through a lot of lumber stacks at big box store to find best boards.
  2. Projects Adirondack Style bar stools

    Adirondack style bar stools, comfortable and unlike regular Adirondack chairs easy in and out of. These chairs are destined for outdoors so used treated lumber but very selective using only boards with no knots. Planed every piece before assembly to make wood load unweathered. Sealed with...
  3. Barstool Stone Inlays

    I was given a pair of old bar stools by customer and asked if I could "save" them. They were in pretty tough shape and had, at some point in their life, been given a haphazard and unfortunate coat of stain (far more "Molting Hyena" than "Dark Walnut"). Normally I build everything that I do...
  4. Bar Stools and Drink Shelf for Billiards Room

    I wanted to have some seating in our billiards room without taking up a lot of room. The drink shelves and bar stools worked out well, nice sturdy seating without taking up too much room around the pool table.
  5. Explorer 16' canoe

    I finished this canoe after finding the shell for sale locally. This is from a kit made by Waters Dancing Boat Kit Company out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. These kits are meant to be assembled using the stitch and glue method. The gentleman I bought the shell from made a strong-back and...
  6. These are the old snack bar stools from our cabin.

    I'm in the process of getting rid of some things that are taking up space in our garage attic. Click here: This is what we replaced them with. Man!! does stuff ever accumulate. I listed these on Craigslist. I they don't sell, I'm donating them to Goodwill. The legs on these stools are made...
  7. Walnut Bar Stools

    I wanted to build these to be able to fit into several decors, from a formal setting to a Western style…. So the design was kept simple. I did some texture work on the backs to lend a little visual interest. They are finished with a spar varnish, oil mix. I am looking for the right leather to...
  8. Belly up to the bar (Maloof inspired Bar Stools)

    Hello fellow LJ'ers. Just delivered these three bar stools to a semi-local customer. A custom detail was added (note the Cloud Lift on the lower stretchers). The client was very happy, and the celebratory drinks were flowing freely. At the risk of a self-indulgent plug, if you would like to...
  9. Cherry Barstools

    I bought the air dried 8/4 cherry that I used for these stools in Vermont two summers ago, not sure of what it would actually become. Even in rough form it was nice looking but once I started planing it down the real beauty began to reveal itself. It has dark lines (both green and black)...
  10. island stools

    we just bought a house back in August and it has an island in the kitchen. Our kids like to watch us cook or draw or whatever at the island but they have been having to use their step stools. I made these stools to (somewhat) match the benches I made for our dining room table (post here). The...
  11. Eating counter

    Made of Elm and finish with linseed oil, shellac and a poly top coat. The joints in the chairs are based on Sam Maloof styles. The back rest pivots to be always on the "sweet spot" against the lower back.
  12. Murphy Bed w/Bar Height Table | Custom

    This is a version of a Murphy bed that was built in March 2012. It is a desk murphy bed that was designed by the customer. The desk on it was extra tall. They wanted it to be used with bar stools. The style of the face is a Modified Hudson Bay. I sent this one unfinished. The customers...
  13. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    So I am quite certain this is a stretch but here it goes, I am really in need of a festool domino joiner just for an afternoon, I am working on a decent commission and originally I was going to use pocket holes but I absolutely hate using pocket holes, not nearly as strong and does not look good...

    Bar Tops I'm finding out the hard way, that in order to become a good finisher I need to be an even better refinisher! This has been a long road. I started out using a brush-on spar varnish and quickly realized that there had to be a better way. Now, there is nothing wrong with a brush-on...

    Interested in making a couple of bar stools, but looking for ideas or part sources for the swivel mechanism.
  19. Marketplace Classifieds
    Well I am putting my hand to producing some moulding planes. In addition to the ones I have made in the past for my own use, I have started with some rabbet planes to offer for sale. Not sure exactly the price so I would take offers. I am open to trades as well. If anyone has something to offer...

    Greeting all, I have a couple questions for ya. 1. I sold my Rikon Deluxe and purchased a new MM16, hopefully I get it next week. Anyway, what do you think is best, just wiring a short pigtail and making extension cord or wiring probably 20' of 10g or 12g wire with a plug direct to the saw? I...
