I wanted a stool to sit on while I do certain operations in the shop. I like the one Dorje made simple, strong, and quick to make. I also liked the idea of using bamboo skewers as pegs as Don did in his great summer challenge box. Although I used glue with this.
I took a couple of slabs that I had cut from some cedar and just quickly rough cut all the pieces. I drilled the mortices on the drill press with forstner bits. I cut the tenons on the bandsaw and shaped them with my drawknife. The whole thing took about 1 1/2 hours to build. I was using it before the glue dried.
