Hi All! I've been scouring the forum for quite a while, and I found some beautiful bar stools tooled and upholstered by members. What I can't seem to find is any description of how the sides of the padded cushion are attached to the base of the stool. I'm planning to cut out a circle for the top of the stool, tool the heck out of it, and sew it to about 2-3 inches of soft upholstery leather (or is vegtan also usable???) so it squishes when you sit down on it. But I can't seem to find a video or description of how you attach the sides of the leather to the wooden top of the round stool. Tacks? Staples?? No clue. The wooden stool I have looks like the attached photo. I'm hoping to make a leather seat constructed like the one pictured (but without the braid) that will attach to the wooden stool. Any guidance and photos of the underside of a finished stool would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Corey C. www.theleathergeek.com
Hey Everyone, I've got a project in the works for a couple of fire-fighter themed barstools. What I'm looking for is a supplier that sells JUST the legs for making your own barstools, and sells them in small quantities or even singles. One that has a nice varied selection would be great. I've googled, ebayed, even mcmaster-carred, and can't seem to find such a supplier (unless I want to order several thousand units, direct from china, to be sent in my very own shipping container... ) If I can't find a supplier, I'll probably have to hit up Sam's Club, Walmart, etc. and try to find some stools that will work and just canniballize them for the parts, but I thought I might ask here first before going that route. We're more than capable of making them ourselves at our shop (welding/fab, machining, general mechanics type place), but I've crunched the numbers, and to make the run of just three or four sets of legs would put this project way over budget. Thanks everyone, -Aaron
