Sometimes I just want to make something. I get the woodworking bug so bad I just gotta do something and it doesn’t matter what.
Am I alone in this?
Luckily, I’ve been able to do a few woodworking things lately. I made lumber racks for my shop; I made a little platform that my lawnmower can fit underneath and that I can store my wheelbarrow on top of, thus making more room in the shop. I also just finished one of those pallet signs like you see on pinterest (for my sister-in-law). One of these days I’ll actually make some fine furniture, which is the direction I want to go in woodworking.
A couple of months ago, though, I wasn’t working on anything and I just had to build something. I had a scrap piece of 4×4 and a scrap piece of 2×6. I particularly wanted to practice a through tenon so I decided on a one-legged stool. I mean, what in the world else are you going to build with that, right? I’m sure anyone would decide to build a stinking one-legged stool…
Anyway, you seriously gotta be desperate to build one of these things. Oh, and I decided to video the process as well.
