In this video I make a swivel stool for my parents.
I use ash tree wood with oak inserts.
This is my first experience of bending hard wood and as can be expected, not everything went smoothly. Nevertheless I've had some great experience out of it and my parents are chuffed with the outcome.
The stool stand is an industrial cast iron base which I got from my dad.
The final piece feels a bit heavy, but on a plus side - it is strong, stable and spins silently and smoothly.
