Chris at Flair Woodworks has kicked off a contest for a weekend shop stool build off, which sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend. Not that I don’t have plenty of projects to work no, not the least of which is the currently-under-construction Underhill Nail Cabinet. But now there are prizes to be had, so the stakes have gone up.
I’ve doodled ideas for several stools, and decided to take the design for one of them a bit further. I kind of like it. The shape of the legs isn’t quite right, and I think the bronze bars need a little less curve, but it’s close enough to ponder making. I think I’d need to make the legs a little thinner and refined the curves on the outside faces and edges. The should join the seat with wedged through tenons too, but this is just a quick digital mock up to see if I like it.
