I needed a stool for my architect’s table that I recently made. So I made this simple stool – walnut, 2 coats of shellac and wax. Loose tenon joinery.

Stool, as well as table, looks so elegant and nicely rounded. I like smooth lines and precision. Walnut can’t be a bad choice in any project.

Thanks everyone. Jerry – I’m going to attempt the same T-square that you made. I should have enough walnut left to make it.

I love the shape. What angle are the legs? And how did you attach the seat? thanks

Paul – The angle is 8°. I attached the seat by 3” wood screws in slightly oversized holes in the top rails. 3 in each side, 1 in each end. Countersunk. The top rails are 2-1/2” wide, so the screws go into the bottom 1/2” or so of the 1-3/4” thick seat. I oversized the holes in the rails in case the rails and top have different movement.
