As the only science teacher in my school I don’t have a lot of time to do any woodworking, or much of anything else for that matter while school is in session (it also doesn’t help my wife is 8 months pregnant). So while I’ve been trying to stay current here at lumberjocks I haven’t made very many posts.
On another thread I mentioned I used students offcuts for projects. I decided I better post something made from those offcuts. The kids will literally get rid of a quarter panel of high quality 3/4 ply just because they aren’t using any more in their project. I also use their Cedar, Oak, and occasional walnut for projects.
My wife and daughter went out of town for a week to help her sister with her baby. After I got everything else done that had to be done I realized I had some time to do some woodworking. My dad had built some of these stools for my nephews years ago, and so I decided I’d make one for my little girl. Its made out of both pine and oak ply. But since my plan was to paint it anyway I figured it wouldn’t matter.
