These stools came to life from stumps I brought back from the dump near the cottage. I let the stumps dry in the basement for about a year.

Very nifty stools. What angle did you drill for the tenons on the legs? Thnx in advance. They look good.

Those are very nice and I love the wedged tenon joinery. I’m amazed they didn’t have more cracks/splits.

Nice use of the “stumps” : )

Nice, I have a few cookies cut from stumps that I have been drying for something similar. Great job.

What height and leg angle. I too have been saving back some cookie cuts from a large honey locust for just this project. Thanks for any advice. I’ll be watching this post in anticipation of getting started on mine.
Thanks for posting.
