PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking.

Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.”

So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most common material I will use… and encourage others to use and try different mediums of materials as you may pick up a few ideas & techniques for achieving different things that can then be used for woodworking.

But again because this is not all wood I have made a blog post about instead of a project post

As the title says this is a stool made from a piece of PVC pipe. Now it is not a piece that your hardware store will have but your drain layer plumber may have an off cut or I would go see pipe fabricators (the guys that turn pipe in to junctions and make fittings from the pipe etc) and ask for off cuts. On average the stools we have made in the past are about 420mm – 450mm. so they are not that high or tall. However we are just going to put them on the back deck.

It can easily be achieved with a drill, jigsaw and grinder with sanding disc and clamps. So very little or limited tools are required.

Enjoy, and hope you can understand my kiwi accent… lol
