Thanks for your comments. I'm also very pleased with it.
 
One day, I may try something similar but with thicker timber. I could only achieve an 18mm finish due to the width of the boards and slight cupping here.
 
Olly.

That is really good.  You have done very well with some complex angle work there.  M&T joints on an angle are far from easy.

I metioned above that this apparently simple project had some complex angles to work with.  The tenons present little problem (so far as I can see) but how do you ensure that your mortices are cut at the correct angle.  Do you use a jig on a morticing machine perhaps?

That finish looks great on the Oak it is a fitting finish to the stool.
 
Its a shame Bens little photos competition is not running now this would surely be in with a good chance along with several others i have seen recently.

Thanks very much.  I had viewed the album but hadn't previously enlarged the morticing picture.  The guide isn't all that obvious on the little one.  That'll teach me to look properly

Only just found this stool Olly.
 
It`s a beaut, the deep rich brown is lovely, is it English oak?
 
Also what finish have you used?

Thanks, Baz.
 
This is actually English Brown Oak - the dark staining is caused as the result of an attack from the beef steak fungus. ...This fungus has looks like a beef steak!
 
Finish was four coats of Danish Oil. Actually, I applied a fifth coat to the top. It still manages to darken brown oak while highlighting the beautiful grain.
 
Richard,
 
Glad you found the image okay and now have an understanding. If I was doing this again, I think it would've been easier to have bevelled one edge down the length of a scrap of timber instead of just the end grain. That way, I could've chopped three mortises at once without having to reposition the guide.
 
 
Thanks to everyone for their comments.
