Time lapse Woodworking #19: Sculpting wood chair parts with Kutzall carbide

10-01-2013 01:58 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

Kids Stools #1: Kids step stool and chair - Prototype

My biggest concern was fingers getting pinched when moving the step up and down. The stool came out pretty good, I think I will add another dowel to the front of the stool so that the back doesn’t swing all the way down when you pick it up.

The idea of making the chair for our beloved daughter was originated a long time ago, but wanted to make something special for her.

I think the seat is sculpted but that isn’t important at the moment.Does anyone remember seeing the article that describes how to build this chair?I’ve included a hand ske...
