A while back we purchased a chair to double as a room accent and desk chair. The look was right, but the height was wrong. All I needed was two more inches. I can work with that! I had some left over hickory from a coffee table project. Good deal, that’s almost like free material. The easy part was cutting and gluing the rough stock planks together. Forming the shape was a bit more challenging. I do not have a lathe, so round was out, and square was in. Cutting tapered legs got a little complex. I had to create a jig to accommodate the table saw. Thank you youtube.
Once the taper was formed all that remained was the sanding, implanting a threaded fitting, staining, and a coat of poly. Easy peazy.
