I could have also turned some parts for a piano stool, but I wasn't going to wait. I have started on a more modern one with a leather seat and room underneath the seat for sheet music. I don't have a picture yet, but one of the hard parts was a decorative strip of a half round that I wanted to fix around the seat. When talking about it it was suggested that I sand back a toothpick, so that's what I did, and with success I might add:

In the meantime I wanted to try and finish a few more of the numerous kits I have lying around. This time a modern little kitchen stool-cum-stepladder. It is a copy of an original one brought out by Ikea. The kit wasn't designed by me, but it's very cute:
One day I will make a modern kitchen. Till then I'll just look at the result with satisfaction. I also have a kit for a fridge somewhere, but I'll leave that one till I actually start this kitchen. That'll be a long way off yet.
Last night I have started on another kit: a basket with garden gloves and such. Yes, I am on a roll while I have the time... I am not happy with the basket, I've done a better job in the past, but I am nearly finished with the gloves and just love them:
This is one of the two. It's made of real leather and I was even game enough to separate the fingers, so it's a correct into the very detail. It was fiddly work, to be honest, so I leave the other one till tomorrow and go off to bed now. See ya...
