I have made a number of meditation stools in the past usually they were in the shape of a T with one large leg. The biggest problem was the lack of portability, so this is my answer.
Using a overly large dovetail I was able to lock the center to the legs, then when portability is desired simply remove the center/fold and lock the center into the top. The joinery is tight enough to keep everything in place yet is simple enough to remove.
There was a fair bit of trial and error to get the right design and to make everything work but I’m happy with the results.
Material is Maple with the center being walnut inlayed with a ying/yang of English walnut(dark) and mahogany.
SIze is 9.5”H x 5”W x 14”L.
Thanks for looking
