Increae bar stool height
We have 2 bar stools that are 24" and we want to increase that to 30". We purchased these high end stools about 10 years ago on a trip to High Point, N. Carolina. The bar stools sat in our basement (never used!) until now. We bought them for our new kitchen which, as it turned out, didn't happen until now! LOL.
We love the style and size of these bar stools --we have looked at new but none are as wide and comfortable.
The stools are the swivel style. We would like to sandwich some round wood disks in the center (to increase the height) and reattach the swivel and the seat. (Our plan is to glue and screw the disks together and then sandwich them.)
Is this a good plan? We are having difficulty in locating thick enough wood to make the disks. We would like 2" to 3" thick disks that we could screw and glue together. We can cut our own disks if needed. What wood would be suitable? Any suggestions and know-how would be appreciated!
