Beautiful and inspiring work Larry. Can you tell us more about the German finish mentioned earlier in the thread?

I've been using Livos Kunos Natural Oil Sealer.  Easy application, less amber than other oils, and has outstanding wear resistance.  More info can be found here.  Livos
 
The USA distributors are a husband wife team.  Andy's main job is high end cabinets in Idaho.  He uses Livos, I think exclusively, in his work which says a lot for the product.  Betsy handles Livos sales.  Both are knowledgeable and friendly.

Lots of other products in the line up.  Bunch of different stains which work well, lots of brown shades! :D  I tried a few out trying to duplicate fumed white oak.

The fumed/grayish is tricky and hard to do.Look at some of Rubio Monocoat products.They respond differently on different woods......

Another one.













Still in the exploring process.  Throwing stuff on the wall to see what sticks.

Thanks for the kind words guys!  Makes me feel good. :)

That last stool is the best I've made to date, so I decided to give it to the Eureka Springs School of Art

Its a fast growing local craft school with a great wood and metal shop that I support.  They will put it in an art auction this October to raise funds for the school.  Can't wait to see what it brings.

Wow.  I really think that may be the prettiest stool I've ever seen.  So much talent here.
