Thanks, Mike ... me being color challenged to the max, Linda picked out
the upholstery. I brought her along thinking she needed to approve the
color like she does my ties and socks, and, as luck would have it, and
ever the nosy female, she went through the upholstery shop's scrap bin
and found just enough to do the job in her color of choice.
Well, I certainly hoped you got a discount for pulling the needed materials
out of their scrap bin. ;)
I am not color blind, but I might as well be in my house. NOBODY wins a
color argument with my honey. A total no win situation. She's a quilter
and know a couple hundred colors by name!
Good looking bar stools. They look good and I am absolutely certain that
they match something else in the room/house.
Got a question for you. I noticed that you had 10 curved pieces in various
pictures. The final result seems to be 4 bar stools (using 8 of those
curved pieces). That would mean one of two things. a) You have a fifth
bar stool someplace hiding. (a backup, maybe?) Or b), you used a belt and
suspenders approach and cut a couple extra pieces just in case Murphy paid
you a visit. Am I close or is there a mysterious third reason? :)
As far as the comfort factor goes, they are bar stools. If you sit long
enough in them to get uncomfortable, pour yourself another drink! Comfort
will be restored.

Thanks. Yes they do ... Although what, I'm not sure.
When doing anything that requires a fussy, time consuming setup that may be
difficult to duplicate, like identically curved and mortised components of
a chair, I try to make at least two extra of each part. Having them on hand
is the only way to insure you won't need them.
I dinged one back leg in the routing, and used one of the front legs for a
project mortise "setup block", so am two legs short of having enough parts
for another stool, But, I also have extra leg blank stock ... who knows
when the muse strikes and I may need a stool for the shop.

Apparently it is not all that unusual:
Pandi is not near the exhibitionist this pup is, she's downright dainty
about it; and she doesn't move, just stands in one spot. Class act.
(must be related to that gal in school, pretty good looking country
girl, but not a class act, who would bet you she could pee higher on a
tree than you could if you didn't use your hands ... she could!) ;)
Back in my tender years I once went canoeing with some friends on the
Delaware River. There were 10 of us, a guy and a girl in each of five
rented boats. We came across a tiny island in the middle of the river; a
hump maybe 100' long by 40' wide, covered in tall grass.
On the upriver side were three men, pants at half-mast, returning the
beer back to the Earth near their raft. We all chuckled as we floated by.
A half minute later we reached the downriver tip of the island, where we
found the distaff side of the rafting party: three women, pants around
their knees, butts to the sky.
Six friends relieving themselves on a glorious summer afternoon in view
of passers-by and all Creation, but hidden from each other. Funny
creatures, we humans.
