This stool is based on a plan I found on FineWoodworking.com, “A Sturdy Footstool” by Mario Rodriguez. It is made out of some walnut I got from a lady I work with. Her grandparents cleared some land on their East Texas ranch and had all this walnut milled and dried. It is different than any other walnut I have used or seen, maybe it is a different variety, or maybe it was not steamed like walnut typically is before drying. Anyhow, some parts had some wonderful figure, so I use some of that for the top. The wedges in the tenons are maple.
