This is a little stool I made when I first got my Logman Tenon Maker.

That’s sure caveman style, Dick! I see you’re having fun with your new toy.

Dick,

This is about as rustic as it gets. How does it sit?

It is always exciting whenever we get a new tool. I am sure that your are still on an adrenaline rush from putting it into production.

Nicely done.

I may have to shorten up on the top overhang, my grand son stepped on the end, & it flipped on him.

It was just another challenge for him though. LOL.

Like skate boarding.

To tell the truth, I did this a couple of years ago.

I just happened to run into it in my files.

Eventually, I may get all of my stuff posted here.

It may take awhile though. LOL

Pretty cool stool Dick, I take it, it is up at the cabin? That would seem like a fitting place for it.
Perhaps a review on the Tenon Maker?

Hi Dick;

Reminds me of the stories of the depression days when people would burn their furniture for warmth.

Yours is already set to go! LOL

You need to make a couple smaller pieces for kindling.

Nice job;

Lee

Thanks!

One thing I like about a project like this is you can complete it in a few hours, & you don’t have sand it, or wait for

the finish to dry.

That is cool. I have to get me one of them. Would you recommend it or would you have picked another Tenon Maker now that you have had time to play with it?

Thanks to all!

Snowdog!

I really like this tool. I’ve had a lot of fun with it.

Go for it.

Click here, Rockler has a video of it.
