Right before I left for Colorado, I had showed Dad the instructions for a child's chair that I found on Ana-White.com and suggested that we adapt this idea to build bar stools for our Sandcastle cabin.
I knew Dad could look at the plans and improve on them using the idea of a storage box as part of the chair construction.
When I got back from Colorado, Dad had the prototype almost complete and was in gear to start cranking out barstools. I had thought this would be a project for over the summer, but Dad was motivated to get them made in time for The Hunt, which was 2 short weeks away.
With Laila here, it was busy, but we got the lumber home and the construction began.
|Dad had to wear a warm uniform to work in the unheated garage.|
|Laila was in charge of inventory and parts management.|
|There were 6 chairs to be made and it took some organizing to make sure all the correct parts were cut.|
|It is fun to work with Dad in the woodshop.|
|Nothing like a staged photo|
|Due to winter temperatures, the kitchen became the assembly annex one evening.|
Here is the picture of the prototype.

Thank you ana-white.com
|Ready for shipping|

|Each owner will have their own stool and a little storage box for their valuables.|
Friday morning before hunting, I drove up to the Sandcastle with a load of 3 stools.
The other 3 fit into Dana's pickup when he came to Rice Lake to pick up Dad for the hunting weekend.
|The barstools are a fine addition to the cabin bar.|
The crunch was really on during the construction of these stools, but it is very nice to have them completed and ready for card playing at the cabin.
