I made six of these when my daughter decided to hold a 60's night. The theme was an American diner. These bar stools were part of a whole set I made including the bar and booth area. The wood came from various scraps I had including door stiles and rails, pallets etc, nothing of any quality. The stool frames were M&T with 15% angles. The seats not shown here were made from a chipboard base with foam and a vinyl covering. Tools used were table saw and a hammer and chisel.

That’s pretty good with just those tools! I am just curious what the saw cuts are for at the tops of the legs? Ian

Good question. To be honest they are a mistake but when you have limited resources you have to use what you got. My daughter doesn't know so don't say anything. The mortices were with the hammer and chisel. The tenons were done on the table saw.
