Funky mid-century bar stools for our covered deck were on the wish list for quite some time.
A few months ago I picked up two mid-century TH Brown stools from eBay (I bought them from the very spooky Jack Sim, Brisbane's ghost tour operator extraordinaire. Woo..wooo). T H Brown & Sons were a hugely popular furniture maker in Adelaide and made very good quality pieces. Their mid-century range of furniture is quite delicious and still reasonably affordable.
We already have some TH Brown stools which we use in the kitchen. They were another eBay purchase that we bought from an elderly couple in Melbourne a couple of years ago. (Organising shipping is always a pain in the neck though)
Anyway, when I saw a matching pair being sold locally, I knew they'd work well for the bar area. I was so pleased to get them.

The new stools are in good overall condition however they just needed a bit of re-gluing at some of the joins to remove the wobbles. Jason kindly did the honours of gluing and clamping the stools together.

Jason used a good quality wood glue and held everything in place with clamps that were padded with towels and chocks of wood to prevent damaging the teak legs. I'll give the legs a polish with some Danish oil and they should be right to go...
Just in time for summer drinkies on the deck! Cheers!
