I’ve been working on dovetails lately and I got tired of leaning/squatting over my bench to do detail work. I decided to take the day to make an adjustable shop stool out of some scraps.
The base is poplar and the seat is cherry. The acme threaded rod, nut, and all wood are actually leftovers from my bench build last year. I think the base is a little narrow, but it’s not unstable at the bench. This was a pretty straightforward build. The seat was scooped with a hand plane going across the grain, and finished with a spokeshave. The threaded rod is epoxied into the base of the seat.
All in all the seat is very comfy and I like that you can turn side to side easily.
