    That is a very cool frame, and I like the square dowels on the joints!

    Why did you use dovetails to join the rails on the legs of the ying-yang-stool? It looks like it will break there at the first opportunity. It might not, but this caught my eye almost as much as the picture frame.

    Hello Dieter
    The rails are prevent the legs from spreading so are tensed. I wanted to rely not only on the glue therefore the Dovetails. The stool is also not very high so you can not put your feet on the rails. The stool should also be very light so that my wife can grab it with only one oily hand. It is mainly used as a massage stool.
    In the Book Craftsman Furniture Projects is a Project Green and Green Wall Mirror. The Mirror frame inspired me to this Picture Frame. The joints are all Mortise and Tenon joints and in the Time the Green Brothers lived the Glue had not the Quality of our Days, so under the Ebony Plugs (here used Walnut) were Screws and the Plugs hide them. For my Frame I used only the Plugs without Screws. To make the Plugs I ordered a Set of Square Punches from Lee Valley Canada and the Package arrived two Days later in Germany!!!

    The Green and Green Style Furniture I like best and I want to do some Projects in This Style. My favorite Piece is the Freemont Nightstand, here a Photo from a Piece Darrell Peart made i think.

    Hi Paul,
    nice work.

    I’m looking at the yin-yang stool and I’m trying to figure out how you managed to join the two big parts of the seat. Unless you are using veneer, it looks extremely difficult to get a tight joint line on that curved edge.

    Hello Kjell
    I did three Templates from 1/4″ Plywood see Photos. Two are for The Sinus Wave and one is for The Ellipse. I cut it out with a jigsaw and smooth it with Sandpaper. For The Sinus Wave it is a little bit difficult but I did one Part in the Vice and hold one Part in hand (Photo) and pull Sandpaper between the two Parts until no Gap is left. Then I do the Shape from the Templates to the two parts of the Seat and cut it out roughly with a jig Saw. Then I clamp every Template to its own part of the Seat and smooth it with a Router with a flush trim Bit to the Sinus Wave shape. The two Parts of the Seat are square to this Time. Then I glue it together. I had a little Gap in the center but I gave more Pressure on the clamps. After drying I did the Shape of the Ellipse on the Work piece and cut it out smooth it with the Router and the flush trim.

    Well done!

    It looks like you achieved some technically difficult work, but also they are quite creative too. I have not seen anything quite like that frame and yin/yang stool. Those are some very distinctive pieces!

    Hello Mike
    Thank you very much!
    One Day my Wife (the Women in the Picture frame)asked me to build her a stool for Massage support. It should be this high and that wide and so on. And I started with the seat sheet and made it in the Style of my Workbench stool. After gluing up I put it away it did not suit me. My Wife is a Nursing Practitioner and works with some Asian practices including Yin and Yang. That Layout suits me better, and so I started with the Seat Sheet again but told nor showed anyone because I did not know what happen if I can do it properly or it will end in Firewood. That s the whole Story.

    Paul, you didn’t mention if the dovetails are full width, I suppose, they aren’t. I would prefer wedged tenons, but thinking about it, I suppose, the dovetails are good enough, and they look nice.
