Well I hope that I’m posting this correctly as It is not

my Project?

This is a Creepie, what you on the other side of the

pond call a 5 board stool.

I think they are common to all countries.

It is made of Red Pine and finished in Rustin’s Danish Oil

Ryan is one of my new Jolly Rouges and only been with us

a short time.

He began learning woodturning which he now does well

This is his first woodworking project and he did it by

himself with only supervision on my part and using only

hand tools (yes I found some in the move ) LoL

I’m rather proud of his achievement

A very nice little stool.

Great way to get him hooked on woodworking, start small with handtools, and before you know it he has a
full shop and is wondering where all his time went. Great stool, and it looks like Ryan and his supervisor has a
of fun coming up. Thank you for sharing.

Rayan that is one cool Creepie.
You will soon be a master with the tools.
