I begin the make of a stool for the workshop, with a comfortable height for my body.
The wood used, here in Argentina, is called “Anchico” (Parapiptadenia rigida). It is a hard and heavy wood, which for its can also be used outdoors.

In this first part designed a template, I decided to make the legs first. I wanted them to have a shape that remembered some of those forms of the fine antique European furniture, but simplified. A visual suggestion, a recall, but not the details of a particular school. Just a little touch of sophistication to flatter me a bit.

I made the joints with mortises, tenons and wedges.

At one point I thought about carving the legs (love the idea), BUT … I decided not to put so much visual information into them, and I simply made their curled edges to give them softness and warmth.

After the test assembly and adjustments, I glued the two front legs and the two rear legs, separately. The assembly will then be joined with a central cross member.
The tenons that protrude, are visible with a faceted finish.

Maybe you want to see the video of this work in progress, I invite you
