I made this nice looking stool using plans from Mac. He’s a member here on Lumberjocks. You can get his plans here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/52684
The planse were well done and easy to read. Thanks Mac!
I made my stool using 100% cherry wood that I had laying around in my shop. I don’t own a mortising tool so I use a Forstner Bit and the mortises that way. I had to do a lot of filling to round the end’s of all the tendons. The joints would of had a much better fit If I just went out and bought that mortising tool before I built ths but nevertheless the joints are strong.
I’m in the prossess of applying a finish now.
Yesterday 12/13/11 I took a trip to Woodcrafters and bought a morotising kit. :)
Thanks for posting the plans! And nice work !
