It’s been way too long since I’ve posted a project, so here you go. My better half has been after me for way too long to make a foot stool to rest her pretty little feet on, so I finally decided to throw something together. I chose pecky cypress for the frame. I planed it down just enough to knock the fuzzies off, but not so much as to take the all the character away. I assembled the legs with pocket screws and then attached the legs using some of the Kreg screws. I used Minwax Cherry stain, just a simple wipe on and wipe off. This was my first attempt at upholstery, so I just pretended I was wrapping a present and stapled the cloth down as best I could. My wife loves it so that’s all that matters, cause when Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!
