Me too.  know the next time I sit on it, it will collapse! Already in the middle of a project so the stool will have to wait.

You need duplicates . I have 2 stools at different heights, one backed adjustable chair and one armed chair, Oh and don't forget the footstool. Sure does make work more comfortable

The original (that I recall) was by Harper's Bazaar...I remember it correctly. How about that?

Roh-kay, Raggy....

 

Glue has been spread, clamps applied...

5 clamps?  Because I ran out....need to buy a few more, sometime...

Let this set a day, or so.   Then the corners get cleaned up, and spiffy.    Beads need to be run around the sides...and a couple saw cuts made,...

And need to cut some leftovers down to size..

To make a sliding lid for the top.  Beads to hide where the slider comes out at.  Panel is Poplar, looks a bit better than just plain old plywood. 

Not sure about a finish, just yet.   Stay tuned ( King Biscuit Flour Hour, 800 on you am radio dial..CKLW)

I'm for the walnut trim!

 

Nice pix of you and your Dad. Looks like the corn is just about ready for chopping or in those days "shocking".

This may or may not get a second coat, before a gloss poly is added...we'll see...5a034c981ecbb_sideview.jpg.3f5c6bf37cbef53c48c587f0f5a82df6.jpg

At least the dovetails show off....
