There are three legs, so guaranteed not to wobble! I made the top from some old oak, and the legs are from old pine boards. It is finished with shellac and pecan stain.

To nice for the application!

Spent a lot of time on a milk stool. Not even close to that pretty, but still worked. Made some over the years too—just used junk lumber and well braced.

I even destroyed one on a cow that had literally tried to kill me. She never even rained a foot to me again; after that I could make her shiver on a hot day by yelling at her. It took at least 3 weeks to even walk normally for me and I was about 15-16 at that time.
