Beautiful job on the stool build. One caution, if it has not come up already:
Because of the high arching cutout on the sides of the stool, the strength of the piece depends on the 4-5 inches of wood above the arch. A failure there brings the whole thing down. This a fairly well known caution about these shaker stools. If I was building this size of stool, I would leave out the arches entirely or keep them minimal.
