I scream, you scream! Ice cream Stools

I posted a picture of what I used to make the stools. I found the base part
at Ace Hardware. They have these boxes with all kinds of nuts and bolts and
other things. I also got the 1/4 " thin walled hollow aluminum rod there and
the washer. The wood circles I got at Michael's. You just paint the wood
circles the color you want then attach the washer to the underside. I did
have to bore out the whole in the washer because I couldn't find one with a
1/4" hole. I cut the rod to the height I wanted and then glued it into the
base and then into the washer. I don't see why you couldn't use 1/4" dowel
painted silver. I'm not very good at explaining but I hope this gives you an
idea of how to make them.
