Router templates for bar stool back legs:
Back legs, routed out with the template pattern shown, and ready for

On the subject of wooden legs, one of the boards bought for this project
had more voids throughout than cheap Chinese plywood:
You could not rip or crosscut it at any location where these voids did

When I mentioned it at the hardware lumber yard on the next trip to pick
up more stock, and showed them this photo, they replaced the $66 board
unasked and with no further questions.
They mentioned casehardening, but I don't think so ... I believe it was
cut from a tree that was stressed in some manner, leaning or twisting
during its growth.

interior voids than Swiss cheese ...

Cool stuff. I love chair setups.
