This project came about because I had a growing pile of offcuts I didn’t want to throw away. This was my first time trying lamination, and I learned my lesson for next time to take care in grain orientation when laying out the pieces. Fun, little, unexpected project. I detailed some of the build in the a short blog series.

Good use of your off cuts, it turned out really nice. Cool watching it come together in your blog.

Very neat little stool. Looks a lot more than off-cuts.

A great project. Exacting measurements, you make it look easy, but it is the measurements that make the wonderful footstool. Nice.
