Hi all!, here is the complete project of my new shop stool. This work, was covered with two videos that point to the working feeling. I also called it: “stool in concert”, because of the beauty of the music, that put me on the right sensation.
Also I posted two blog entries about the process, but aren’t a how to, only an update of the work, and some details.
All can be best, but I feel happy with the result, and I learned a lot making it.
So, with my high respect for you, I posted here, and I invite you to see it. Hope you enjoy!

Good looking stool … I like the shape of the legs. Also, I see no power tools in the photos here or on the blog. May I assume you are a hand tool junkie as well? Because that’s how I roll! Again, good job!

I really like manual tools a lot, but I like to enjoy the freedom to use both. In the stool I also used power tools, and you will see that for a similar job, in the tenon saw I used only hand tools. (In the videos you will see it more clearly). I mix them and I try to face the challenge that sometimes involves doing something with only hand tools, and enjoy it fully. I am very happy that you comment and ask. Thank you very much friend!

I should have watched the videos before asking! I am 100% hand tools. To that end I do not have electricity in my shop (by choice). I work by natural light or candle light if need be. Great videos by the way … I like your style. Keep up the good work!

You know I once thought about doing the same thing. But I did not dare yet to investigate the light to record the videos. It’s something I’d like to try, and maybe you’ve told me now, is a message that will motivate me to try. Thank you for your support and warm words. Really thank you very much!

Nice work, especially the unique legs, very nice.
The videos are good, nice music, very relaxing.
What finish did you use?, brushed on easily & I’m looking for easy when it comes to finishing.

Thanks friend, I really like making videos. In this case I used water-based polyurethane lacquer, the same one used for wood floors, for its high resistance to friction and for its quick drying. I like to use with watery base because it does not add the typical yellow color of the others. Sandpaper between layers. Thanks for comment :)
