Dyed oak bar stools.

This solid oak bar stool was inspired by a DIY Tyler build. I used Tyler's dimensions and basic design with a few modifications. I used Festool dominos for the joinery. I cut the top of the stool with a bandsaw to create the curve in the seat. After sanding everything, I used a damp rag to wipe down all the pieces. After they dried, I sanded down the raised grain to 220 grit before I wiped on the water-based black dye. I used several coats to get it as dark as possible. Once the dye was dry I sanded off several spots to create a distressed look. Then I put on five coats of satin wipe-on polyurethane.
