I used the Vintage Bar Stool plans and modified the height and depth of each chair so that they would fit with an indoor bar height. At the time I didn't have a kreg jig, so I used dowels to connect everything. It took much longer since I had to wait for the wood glue to dry, but they are very sturdy and you can't see and drill marks. I used milk paint over stain to get the distressed look, and I love how they turned out!
