Hello folks,at this time I would like to share my new project A round seat stool.

It started here.

A rough mock-up in scale

To define the curve I choose 15mm deep in center from edges

I used 3 nails but you can use Math to find the radius generator

The square piece of Brazilian Hardwood “Peroba-Mica”

The center hole will be used until finish the stool


The wooden master template for router jig

Here the cards keep a free gap between tracks and piece

Now ready to sculp the seat


The router leaves some traces and I’ll scrape it all


After scraper job

For the second stool I decided to save a router time and bit
I made some holes using a 35 mm fostener bit

Kutzall disc in action

Less job on router

To make a better sand (fits the curve) time I glued a hook and loop pieces at a foam piece

To make a groove I screwed a bushing guide at back of round piece

To make a large leg


The dry fit

The central bar dosen’t has the hole yet

Blue masking tape helps to clean the glue leftovers



All on square


All glue cleaned while soft



The final dry fit


Now the glue is dried and ready to use


I am thinking in apply two coats of lacquer or varnish when the rain at my region stops.

This is a very comfortable seat.

Thanks for attention

Awesome! I couldn’t tell. Did you use the sloping router sled or abandon that for drilling out the seat, or both? How tall is it?

Thanks for all comments.
Andy sorry but my English is not good as I need.So I can’t understood your question about sled and how tall is it?
The stool dimensions are at first picture.If is it about the router jig I have to check.
But if question is about 35 mm Forstener bit holes I did all by hand until it hidden inside the hole (16 mm deep).The most central I did a little deeper Remember to discount the sharp point).When I was using the router at second stool the router still “eating” wood until last passes (but less wood was removed from central part).

One more time thanks for comments and questions.Please let me know if you need more informations.

Have your say...
