Thanks y’all for the advice on this.

Having never worked green wood, I whipped up a little rustic step stool last weekend from some of the smaller scraps. Nothing fancy. I used a homemade draw knife, a makeshift shave horse and turned the dowels on the ends. I shaped the underside of the top with hand planes and a rasp. It was fun.

I’m going to go green for the bar stools, as suggested, but they’ll be more finished and less rustic. The legs will be fully turned, rather than half-turned and half roughly hand shaped. And the tenons will be flush with the top.

Edit: Sorry the pic is upside-down. I have no idea why that happened, or how to fix it.
