Spalted Oak Stools
The seat rails are sitting on notched ledges and secured with dowel pins and exterior glue. The pedestals are solid 3 1/4″ red oak beams wrapped at the bottom with notched 2″x3″x14″ oak runners with 8 counter-sunk exterior screws on the top (with wood plugs hiding them) and 8 of the same screws on the bottom making it very sturdy. The tops are put together with domino biscuits and glue…it’s all sanded and finished with tung oil.
