    Well, he's possibly not doing too much creating these days. Unless it's for the Big Boy!

      I'm gonna steal the concept and use it someday. I'll produce a custom line of ergonomically curved barstool seats. I'll claim it as an original idea. I'm gonna be rich...RICH, I tell ya! (rubbing hands and chortling evilly).

      OK, maybe not. (I get a little melodramatic at times)

      Krenov and Maloof have not lived in vain. I think both would approve of those stools. Thank you for showing both the process and the product.

        Very nice! That's one I have not done, though I've done several similar things with the table saw. One of the more exciting things in my life is when I find I've come up with a method to achieving a goal, and it works. In my shop, that's very often something to do with the table saw, and to a lesser extent the milling machine. Pivot point milling has been good to me- closely related to using a rotary table. More and more I find myself roughing out something on the table saw, prior to milling on it, and I now can square up the end of pipe up to 2 ft diameter on the table saw (not steel pipe though). Innovation- indespensible skill enabling survival of the species-
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

          I see there are a few other woodworkers ( or at least name dropers)
          on this board. :-)

            Lew I don't do any at the moment as there's only so many hours in the day, but it's how I got into machining. I keep my subscription to Fine Woodworking however and once things settle back down again look forward to picking up a plane again. Sometimes I prefer the organic nature of woodworking ... besides there's often better "fudge factors" in that field

              Very nice!!

              Looks like you "ebonized" the bar stool seats. I like the "piano" finnish.
