Last weekend, in between sewing projects, I worked a bit on some stools for Bernard the Bear's house. I am going to make the first floor of his house into one great room with a combo living room area and kitchen. I don't really want to devote room to a dining room, so Bernard is eventually going to have an island with kitchen cupboards on one side and an overhanging counter on the other side where he eats. I started working on stools for the island- even though I don't have the island built yet. I might regret that- we'll see. Anyhow, here is what they looked like before I started- from a 1/2" scale kit of simple furniture.
I cut off the bottoms- because I want them to be stools. I also cut off the arms and trimmed them up a bit. Then I cut a golf tee down and glued that to a small scrap of basswood. After that had dried I glued the golf tee to the bottom of the stool and then I added some paper clay to smooth things out a bit. Now I have to sand them up- whittle at them with the xacto knife to make them match a bit more and decide if I want to go through the process again with one or two more. Bernard likes them so far- but he is reserving final approval until he sees them with the island. He is such a picky bear.
