I wanted to make another one, and gifting season was coming up, so guess what Sharon got as a present?
A Shogi Stool
This one is made of slightly nicer wood, oak instead of poplar. I also did a better job sewing the seat. I cut more of the joinery by hand, but I also started with narrower wood for the legs so that I wouldn't have to do as much rip cutting. The wood was a quarter inch wider than the dowels, though, so I had to taper each laeg slightly. This introduced some interesting profiles for the brass, but it looks OK, mostly.
