Industrial chic adjustable stool

Saw this recently on the 1stdibs.com web site reently, and modeled it today as a way to avoid some real work. The original, called the Ever-Hold Automatic Adjustable Stool, dates from the 1930s. It's mostly wood, including the thick column that holds the adjustable post. My model is a little stylized; I did't model every screw and bolt. And I think the legs still need some work. There must be some sort of spring-loaded pawl inside the green post to hold the seat at a given height, but the images I had gsve me no clue about how the seat adjusts.
Enjoy.

Yes, Frenchy, the original stool is even older than I am.
BTW, I did reshape the legs yesterday, so they're closer to the original. And I couldn't have done the model without two cool plugins: True Bend (for the backrest) and Fredo6's Radial Bending (for the seat).
