This is an adjustable stool I designed for use in my shop, mainly with my scroll saw. It is adjustable from 21” to 30 1/2” in about 2” increments and is made with 4/4 cherry. The seat is attached to a 1 1/2” post that slides within a sleeve for a base. There is about 1/32” gap around the post in the sleeve so hopefully I won’t have problems with expansion/contraction later. It is finished with General Finishes Satin Arm R Seal.
This is my first project with nice wood such as cherry, and I couldn’t be happier. About the only thing I would change is the seat glue-up. It’s pretty obvious from the grain where the glued-up boards are and the seams aren’t even centered, but whatever. The last picture is from when I was cutting the slots for the feet in the base. All comments and critiques welcome!
