        Right handed drunks, left handed stools, it'll never work.

            What is the pucker factor on a pendulum router? Just make dang sure you are holding onto it before you hit go?

              About 9.5 before I started but not bad at all after I got going. Took about 1/4" passes with a ball end bit. Mill made it handy, just crank up the table 0.250" and make more sawdust.

                  1) Someone else had a similar idea.

                  2) Any minute now someone is going to give you grief about the sawdust clogging your mill... (Not me, I do woodworking too...)

                    Wow there's an easier way to dish stool tops perfectly .Just stick some sandpaper to your drawers and sit on it for a few months it will assume your perfect mould. Alistair

                      What a brilliant solution! Agree, my clacker would have been twitching a little however. I like the end result, the legs are very "Krenovian" ... is that a word? Anyway, hopefully you know who I'm talking about, and congratulations on the beautiful work.

                          You did.. Test drive those seats right? With the required number of beer?

                          Gotta test drive em, Would'nt want them to collapse under the awsome weight of someone elses 4th beer.

                            Thanks for the praise from you all. I do have 3 James Krenov books in my library but my attempt is more monkey see - monkey do. He CREATES. I was just following the lines of some factory made Arts and Crafts dining room furniture we recently bought.

                            Black Moons,
                            31 years too late for that test drive so I'll just have to trust my joinery.

                              Nice looking job,if you had done some steam bending and a few concealed sheet metal screws it would be a Krenovmaloofnian design
                              I just need one more tool,just one!
