Thought I would show some pictures of stools just made for the grandchildren. Used walnut, birdseye maple,ziricote, padauk,holly, ebony, yellowheart,bloodwood zebrawood,lacewood,elm,wenge and mahogany. Took a lot of different inlays made from parts of various pictures I found on the web. Didn't think the holly was white enough for the panda so used corian instead. I now put a band of masking tape around all or part of the inside perimeter of the inlay form to make sure it is slightly smaller so the inlays fit tighter(have to sand a little). Also primarily use a 1/8 bit but will go to a 1/4 inlay set on larger projects. The leg braces are mortised in with 1/8 inch baltic birch biscuits - easy to fit using the 1/8 plywood bit to cut the mortise. Kids projects are always fun to work on especially when its so darn cold outside!

Very clever, Dennis. They look great all lined up in a row. Makes me wish I had some grandkids who needed one.

Really nice work!

I had a "Huggies" flash back and was afraid to look at the thread titled "Grand Kids Stools" but glad I took the big step!
