Adding another notch to my craft belt

The shaker tape stool I bought a number of years ago at a sale at work was in need of refreshing. Recently when I brought it into work to have it retaped, Mr. G., the Industrial Arts teacher, let me try my hand at seat weaving the stool myself. The first step was to freshen up the wood with danish oil. With his expert help and using the web-based tutorial he's developing, I rewove the stool using a narrow shaker tape in a modified herringbone pattern. I'm really pleased with it! It was really enjoyable and I'd love to try it again. Thanks, Mr. G.!!
