Reader Showcase: Ecarps Finished Louis No Sew Custom Bar Stool

Here it is – after many weekends of the finished wood sitting on my work bench, it's been assembled and enjoyed.

Estimated Cost 

Raw materials, including new belt sander and a jig saw, were about $300 for 4 stools, including foam.

Length of Time 

From start to finish, 8 weeks, but true build time is about 7 days.

Modifications 

We opted for a ladder back to keep light and unobstructed views.

Lumber Used 

Hearthy Pine, we couldn't find 2″ x 4″, so we used 2″ x 12″ and cut it into thirds to make the rear legs.

Finishing Technique 

Putty, 80 grit, 120 grit, 200 grit, belt and palm sander, one coat of Sherwin Williams stain, one coat of polyurethane, sand again with 200 grit palm sander and one final coat of polyurethane.
