This stool was created in an effort to make a stool that was sturdy enough for a six year old to sit on and drag around and whatever. I wanted it to have a stronger joint than the dado I used on the previous stool. The only thing I could think of was this half lap sort of joint you see above. If that’s not the correct description, please let me know. The wood is again pine. Finish will be provided by Addie again (six year old daughter). No glue, just four deck screws per end. Very strong joint.
The joint was made with my mitre saw since I didn’t have any blades for my jig saw at the time. Looking back, I would NEVER repeat that cut nor recommend it to anyone else. I’m just beginning to have a healthy fear of my woodworking tools after reading a lot of the posts here. Lesson learned.
Thanks for your time,
