This was my first lathe project. The seat I cut out of a piece of firewood I picked up in my neighborhood. Not sure what kind of tree that was, but I saw it had those nice red streaks so I figured I’d make something out of a piece. The legs are from a cedar tree I cut down in my dad’s back yard.
As far as being a stool goes, this thing is terrible. It’s too tall, which I can fix, but it’s real top heavy and the legs don’t splay enough. The result is a stool that tips over every chance it gets. If you are standing next to this thing and fart it’s going to tip over. Which happens all the time. I guess that’s what happens when you eyeball the angles. I still sit on it though.
I’ll make another one eventually.
