This is Charles Brock's island stool design. I purchased the plan with CD from Charles and it was excellent. Lots of firsts for me: maloof joints and power sculpting with a Kutzall disc. I must have watched that CD hundreds of times during the build. The seat and stretcher are cherry and the legs maple. I was going to try the Maloof blend of boiled linseed oil, tung oil and poly but I sealed it with shellac prior to glue up. That worried me that the oil wouldn't soak in properly so I stuck with blonde shellac and wax.
