I built these pair of stools in June 2017, they were inspired by Ishitani Furniture. The stools are 12” x 16” and about 21” tall. The legs were turned at the lathe. The tops’ bull nose profile was made using a block plane. One of the stools is made from White Oak and the other one is made from Ash. They are great as stools or side tables.

Very nice. Ishitani is very inspiring on youtube. How did you drill the angled holes for the legs? Just on the drill press or free hand?

Hurcorh,

I drill the holes at the drill press. I built a table with hinges to get the right angle.

Thanks,

Luis

These stools are so nice and they have an appealing simple design.
