You Win Some, You Lose Some

You Win Some? (link to photos)

So, having carved some additional seats from my last big project I decided to put a stool frame under one of them. This stool has a Birch seat and Mahogany  frame and is pretty much typical in most ways. With this stool, however, I got just a little bit lazy with the back….rather than rip veneer strips and glue them together in a form to create a laminated, curved back, I tried something different….as you can see in the photos. Some may like this look but, frankly, I don’t. Nor will I ever do this again unless someone specifically asks for it (why would they do such a thing?).  The back reminds me of something off an M1 Abrams tank which is as elegant as a crack in concrete!

All well, you win some, you lose some. This stool will prolly hang around in my shop for a while…
