Shaker counter stools
I’d be embarrassed to tell you how little I charged for these. I figured they’re pretty simple, so don’t overdo it. However, because of the way I position the front-to-back holes for the stretchers, the legs had to be turned to a diameter consistent within 5/1000’s of an inch for their full length. Not killer hard to do, but requiring a lot of measuring and paying strict attention.
Normally I would have turned finials on the back legs, but these were made to fit under a kitchen counter, so that was ruled out. Made of cherry, darkened with a couple of days exposure to direct sunlight, then finished with a mixture of varnish, tung oil and boiled linseed oil. Finish applied with #0000 steel wool, then rubbed with soft cloth. Four coats.
