I have made a few of these stools over the years. It is from a Woodsmith plan from the early 90’s, which I have adapted to suit the project I wanted to build. The first few I made with square legs, and a bandsawn top. That was before I got sucked into the turning vortex.
The seat is 14” in diameter and glued-up from some left over walnut, it is scooped out about 1/2” in the center for comfort. The legs and stretchers are all turned on the lathe, except I use a tenon cutter to make the 1” tenon on the tops of the legs and the 3/4” tenon on the end of the stretchers. This ensure the tenons are exactly the right size, inserting the tenon cutter into a chuck on the outboard end of the lathe makes this quick work.
