First Stool Post

Always a bit of excitement when you finally assemble whatever you're working on and begin the finish process.  Well, that was done today so thought I'd share a picture of it.  The wood is Honduran Mahogany except for the top stretchers which are Canarywood.  Looks odd but once I weave the rush seat they won't show -- just another way to use up leftover pieces of wood.  I'll use my standard finish of Watco and the 3 part top coat.  Next photo will be of the woven seat --- over, under, around, back, repeat, repeat, repeat, ..........etc. !!!
