Hey Brandon, sounds like a pretty cool father's day gift.
I think John is probably right, but the ones I'm sitting on aren't any further out than the corners of the top. They do splay a little, but just enough that they are in line with the corners of the seat. I have some taller ones up in the shop that are for a 48" counter/table top and are the straight down, but again don't go out any further than the seat at the bottom.
