I have a new island in the kitchen and will be making 5 stools to fit it. From floor to bottom on the island is 34". I'm going to carve up some walnut "tractor seat" type seats and 4 legs. For comfortable seating at the island, how tall should they be?
If your knees go under the countertop, traditionally, 8" of clearance is allowed from the bottom of the top, including aprons if any, to the seat. If your top is roughly 2" thick, no apron, 34" - 2" = 32" - 8" = 24" stool height.
