Small stool that I made over the weekend with old gangway planks. Finished with Light Brown Briwax and tung oil. Legs are offset to 10 degrees. Hope you dig it.

Awesome finish to the stool, and I love the angles as well. Nice!

How’s the top attached to the base?

This is wonderful – not only is the wood reclaimed but you have give the stool itself the look of an old friend. If I went into a kitchen with a stool like this, I would know I was welcome to pull it up and have a cup of coffee and stay as long as I want.

Thanks for the notes. To answer Smitty, I screwed into the base from the underside supports.

Checked your blog site. In your quest for earlier times and recycling lumber have you considered the earlier techniques of framing? Nice piece! Might add to your peacce of mind if you have the time. :-)

Doc, thanks for checking it out. Hope to do a version of this stool with mortise and tenon but wasn’t sure how the small braces would stand up given the small amount of wood used for the tenons. We’ll see…

Maybe large pegs vs. Tennons? rounded off for decoration? Thinking you might enjoy useing a brace and bits? Wabi-Sabi!

Great looking stool! What’s good about your stool is you can ding it and you it will still look good!!
