Farmhouse Counter Stools

Hello Ana,

I wanted to let you know I really appreciate your website and the DIY plans. I am an avid woodworker, and I saw your farmhouse counter stool plans a couple of months ago in one of the emails y’all send out, and I thought I’d try out your plans. I made the frame of the chair out of pine and painted it with white milk paint. I made the seat out of Walnut. I honored your plans, but made the seat 1/2” bigger in length and width so as to overhang the frame 1/4” on all sides. I attached the seat with figure 8 fasteners, since I did not want to drill through the solid walnut and plug the screw holes. The plans were very straightforward, and I thought it was easy to build. You have such awesome ideas and plans - thanks for the inspiration!

I have attached a couple of pics.

Thanks again!

Ken Monson.

P.S. - I plan to try some of your other farmhouse plans in the next few months.
