i made this stool for my nice, and i wanted to make something, using hand tools only, and work with angle’s. and i really like the way it turned out. its made of pine, and put 3 coats of varnish, then wet sanded, and then hand buffed it. that took some time, and i wanted to use a buffer, but i wanted to finish it without power tools

Nice hand made joinery.

I have been gathering plans for stools for next year’s Christmas presents. I like your design and and I have saved it to my “favorites.”

I admire your committment to the hand tools.

A beautiful little stool with a lot of craftsmanship in it. A lot of skills put into that project.

Looks like a “keeper”, will probably become a family heirloom!
