This a new shop stool made out of local sassafras. I used my Table Saw to start shaping the scoop in the seat and finished shaping the seat with a gouge. The leg angle is 7 degrees that i cut out with a compound miter saw. Very little hand tool work this time, but I did use a Jack plane on the legs.

The finish is clear polyurethane which gives it a golden oak appearance.

Nice looking functional stool. What type of joinery did you use to attach the horizontal rails (?) to the legs?

The Rails are attached with dowels that go through the legs.

Thanks, I was not sure that rails was the correct term.

nice stool – the sassafras is a nice change up from oak
