Hi everybody. It’s been a while, well, I was doing this and that… I WAS woodworking but not as much as I have in winter or spring, yes, my shop is toooooo hot in summer.
Well, anyway, this is one of the projects I have done recently. The top is the Japanese Oak, the same piece from the rustic plate I made a while ago. Apparently, the wood was not dried enough. The 5 pieces were put together. The top may look too thin and weak, but it’s just strong enough to hold my weigh (82 kg, 180 lb)without any bending.
The legs are Japanese elm.
I made this about 2 weeks ago, and it was sit in my house, and the top piece moved, twisted, curved… So I did some repair yesterday. I am not sure if that happens again, but even if so, that’s OK, I can repair it again, but I am sure that it would be much less movement than the first repair.
I am still not sure where and how we use this stool in our house, but my daughter has been using it as a desk…
