Sometimes it’s good to stop to make noise and dust and take a seat. But I do not have any seat in my workshop. Then I build this stool made of beech … Now I can take a break !

The design of this stool is my own and I’m happy to present it here. You can download the plan here.

Here is a video to know all its building “secrets” ;)

Fine nuances in controlling the accuracy of the tenons to achieve the end result – Very nice.

Elevating the humble stool to a new height! The stacking feature was unexpected and a treat. Thanks for sharing, Boris!

Realy enjoyed you video – as always. A great design presented in a professional manner.
Is the stool your own design? If so, would you care to share some thoughts regaring shape, funktionality and produktion?
Realy like you workshop btw!

Thanks CFrye.

Kaerlighedsbamsen, yes the design is my own. And it’s the result of two main ideas :
- Create something easy build and easy to share the build process
- Create something pleasant to use

The final design is a bit different than the original idea. But some problem relative to build process and look (like angled feets) have found their solutions by them selves during the first build.

Boris, pardon the ignorance, but have you shared details on that long, wooden front-vise appliance that held long stock for work? Tightened material with a simple lever on the end? Looked very, very useful.

EDIT: NM, I see it in you projects! Thank you!

Great project! It has been a long time since I have wanted a new tool. That bandsaw is incredible! What kind is it? I seriously want one. Also, what the heck is that planer/jointer/table saw router beast? I have never seen anything like it.

Hi Bill,

The bandsaw in an old tool. Yon can see more picture of it in this page. It’s for me an essential tool in my shop.

The planer / jointer / table saw / router is the base tool for an european woodworker. But if I had enough room, I would rather have separate tools ;)
