Making a table

So I finally started the project I had wanted to build for a while. A table just for playing board games. I had originally thought of making it 4 feet by 6 feet but found it would be way to huge, so i scaled down to 4 feet by 3 feet. I have no completed the side walls and surface of the table, even putting on a felt top and dying the side walls blue and yellow.

Making the base

I just a few short legs to see how the table felt. Then I decided on a height for the table and made a base for the table.

Good strong base. Looks like it will get lots of use.

Stools to match

The table is just high enough to not really fit any chairs and not really fit breakfast bar stools. So i decided to make my own stools.

I like stool with foam - simple yet comfy and quick! How did you attach foam over it? screw under plywood seat? Do you have picture of it?

I just layed the foam on top of the seat and used the fabric to hold the cushion in place. I did screw from under the seat. Also I forgot, or did not realize, on the first two chairs that I needed to round to corners of the seat so that the fabric will not rip though and so it also does not hurt when you sit. Here are some photos for you.
