Nice work. Well executed. This type of stool usually has a hard life. These look like they will stand up to it.

The original design didn't have them fitted, but as they're going up to London to be installed in my son's flat, he wanted footie rests. C'est la guerre - Rob

Nope, initial shaping on the seat(s) was done with an Ax tc cutter in the angle grinder. Effective but very fierce! - Rob

Each corner has a 150mm, 12mm dia steel dowel epoxied in place; they're going nowhere :D - Rob

I really really like those.

Very tidy work. If I was a tree, I'd want to end up as something like that.

Many thanks, much appreciated, but with this particular job I never want to see another bit of sandpaper again. Ever - Rob
