    Very nice!!

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

    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! 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'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.

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

    Nice looking job,if you had done some steam bending and a few concealed sheet metal screws it would be a Krenovmaloofnian design

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

    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

    Very Nice!

    Two comments:

    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...)

    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.
