Pine with lexington green milk paint, shellac and wax.
My “Paul Sellers Excersize program” end result. I had purchased about $7 of 2×4 stock and cut all my parts from that. Lots of rip cuts will get your heart rate up garunteed. Truely enjoyed taking this from a couple of ordinary eight foot pieces of lumber to a finished useful piece of furniture. I ‘m starting to get why Mr. Sellers enjoys his craft so much.
My first bench stool made from off cuts of pine from my local wood yard £4 cost not sure yet wether to treat it I seem to like it as it is.
Two bar stools I made for my neighbour. Made with pine treated with varnish. Followed Paul’s design with couple extra bits that my neighbour wanted, back rest and no front riser as she wants cushion to fit.
Pine, fir legs, cedar seat. Finished with shellac.
Bench stool in pine. Finished with Chalk paint and wax
Ash legs harvested from our own trees and maple seat recycled from a kitchen work top.
Stool turned plant stand. My wife saw me working on this project early on and decided she needed a plant stand more than I needed a stool. Next one for sure is a stool.
Walnut prototype: all draw-bore mortise and tenons, through tenons on lowers and blind on uppers. Seat attached with four 5/16th pegs. The design is caveman-elegant.
