Bench Stool Finished

When I completed my tool chest over a year ago I purchased a can of paint which has stayed on the corner of the kitchen counter.  Red chili did not seem to be right for the chest so I submit it here as a possible color for the completed stool.  A couple of thoughts as I finish this project.

1. How in the world did it take this long?

2. I don’t really like working in soft woods!

3. It was fun making the tenons and mortises especially with the angles.

4. The stool is really comfortable.

5. One day I will stage a photograph without the clutter.

6. Onwards to the next project!

    Nice work! I like the red, it works for this piece. Clutter? I haven’t seen my shop floor for weeks. Yours looks absolutely spotless to me. 🙂

    Exceptional work Richard. The color is classy and I can see that your joinery is crisp and spot on. Since its Chili Red, I guess you need to make another one in Chili Green!

      I see you are already in the Xmas spirit. You must be near the rocking chair class. Look forward to hearing about it.

    Very nice, I like it! I concur with your thoughts and have them often myself. Bottom line though is anything that keeps us in the shop and off the couch is a good thing. I’m currently working on a project for our wood groups Christmas show that I can’t share because it’s an annoymously judged show. It’s a carving attempt that’s taking forever but ……… I’m intrigued by it even though it may not even work out. Keeping making sawdust and shavings!
