This was my first woodworking project since I made the decision to become a woodworker! I followed a plan from a book, and I think it turned out good. I’m proud of it at least.

That’s a very nice stool. You’re on a good start. All is in the details and you got it right – wooden plugs, finish, nice curves, etc. I would guess you like woodworking. Can’t wait to see your next project. Welcome abord!

I need to make one of those for my garage workshop. Sometimes I only need to get a little bit taller and it would be good to have one handy so that I quit stealing the one that the kids use in the bathroom. Nice job!
