SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed...if you want new router ), ordered two stools.
So, I took the camera and off to the garage I went.
They are made 1¼" thick Oak.
They remained "natural"...no finish...as the "order" says and...who am I to argue .
Oh, on the pic that you see the text "Dowel power only - no glue"...it was the dry run of course...
