Whether it be a late night snack or something to stand on, I like stool. This one is made from 2-1/2 inch cherry with turned cherry legs. I copied the dimensions exactly from Shaker Shop Drawings Volume something. I drilled 1 inch mortises splayed at 10 degrees with this ridiculous contraption. I’ve had the “portable drill press” thingy for years now and decided to try it. Complete waste of time. Should have done it on the DP but I was stubborn.
I planed it with an assortment and rounded over all the edges with a spokeshave.
I got to turning some spindles, which seem entirely too delicate for this application.
I knocked out a segment for the wedge, cut some wedges out of contrasting wood, and started assembly.
I should have used hide glue but having just gone through a pound of that boiling slop, I just used TB3.
fun little stool to help my GF reach the ziploks. I’m working on a more substantial variety for the shop. Super easy but surprisingly fun.
