Hello fellow lumberjocks. This is another walnut stool I just completed. The longhorn is curly maple, and the tenon wedges are hard maple. Enjoy.

Jeremy, can you give me some details on how you cut out the inlay for this? I really like it even though it is a Longhorn.

Grant, for the inlay on this I used the Whiteside Solid Brass Router Inlay Set . It is a really nice set, goes for about $40 at Woodcraft. It is pretty simple to use, but you can’t really do anything too intricate.

This is a gorgeous stool. This ordinarily would be a rather simple mundane project but you have certainly raised the bar on this one. This is not a simple stool. The through tenons and maple wedges add nice details to the project. And the inlay is just outstanding.

Thanks for the post.

You either gotta be a doctor or a woodworker to appreciate another guy’s stool…especially one with horns on it…

From this woodwoker—-”GREAT STOOL!”

Killer inlay – hook ‘em! Out of curiosity, have you been able to get the longhorn any smaller? I’d love to try it out on a humidor for my pops.
