I recently got some Walnut (offcuts) from a huge cabinet making place. These had lovely ripple, and when I saw Nick Arnulls stool, it seemed the perfect project to make. I decided to make it with 3 legs instead of 4 because that way it will never rock, even if it distorts. I am extremely pleased with it. I also used it to try out my new Axminster Forstner bits which I just got. I originally made the seat part out of another piece of Walnut, but this turned out to have a huge crack running down the centre, so I saved that and made a Cheeseboard out of it. I had to keep the stretchers at the same height along the legs, so I had to use the same position for both stretchers.
The stool is rock solid; my dad, who is a very solid man ;-) sat on it and it didn’t wobble a bit.
