Wanted to build a shop stool. First project with compound angles. Took more time planning how to cut the joints than to actually cut them. Had heard Shannon on Wood Talk that compound angles are easier with hand tools as long as you can cut to a line. I was doubtful to say the least. Now, however, I have to admit that it was just that easy. I still don’t even now how I would cut these with power tools.
Materials are construction grade pine and walnut scraps for wedges and dowels. Stretchers are mortised with my first stab at draw bore pins.
Was a slow starting project but once I realized my “prototype” was actually going to come to something, it picked up speed.
