Yew And Another Stool
Here's a stool that I made recently with a olive ash seat and hazel legs and braces. The tenons are all through the seat then wedged in place, the ash works well with the hazel legs. And I had a look at a slab of yew, this is nice wood. Three stool tops from this slab I reckon, the purple colour in the grain was caused by a couple of nails I managed to dig them out but not before the saw clipped them . I gave part of it a little scuff with a block plane to clean it up, the colour variations are quite remarkable :)
