Inspired by Joe’s link here Thanks Joe!
I wanted a low stool for working in the shop…...looked at the Harbor Freight crap and couldn’t part with the $7.95 for that imported junk.
If you watch the video link, I can offer a few shortcuts:
1. Setup a fence on the drill press for the 1” dowel holes – rather than calculating the overlap of the dowels, just re-drill the same holes after gluing the first two sides of the stool. This gives a full gluing surface for the second set of dowels.
3. Used strap clamps and did all glue-ups in one shot….....
4. No shortcut here…..It took more than an hour to string this up….and it frays at the fingers…....
Easy one day project and plenty cool. 2 years ago I wouldn’t have been even remotely interested in this…...But now this is the cool stool…....
Thanks for looking.
