  • making a stool

    I may be over extending my skill as a new woodworker but I have decided I would like to make a stool. I was going to buy a stool so I would not have to stand while at my scroll saw but then realized how dumb it would be to buy a stool when I have a scroll saw and a band saw. I am looking for some easy instruction for a beginner. If any one has any information or a website with the information it would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Some ideas for very basic stools...

    How about cutting identical slots 3/4" thick halfway down the length of two 3/4" panels, slotting them together, then scrolling another piece of board into a disc which you could use as the seat. If you cut some shapes out of the 'legs', the stool would look much less chunky.

    If you've got a drill press, you could cut 4 pieces of 1" square timber to length for legs and join them with lengths of dowel. Then just cut the seat to whatever shape you want and screw it on top, preferably countersinking the screws.

    If you don't have a drill press, you could use square cut timber for the 'spells', joining them to the legs with sliding dovetails.

    Oh, the possibilities are endless.

    And I bet you end up doing something completely different to any of these nutty suggestions!

      I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots. At this rate, I figure I will be doing good if I get sometime this summer. Glad hubby got his, figure he was my biggest...

      Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
