This stool was made from some scrap pieces of laminated oak kitchen counter tops that were available after our kitchen remodeling. The two legs are slightly tapered towards the top and tilted towards the sides to provide stability. It has three coats of varnish. I made the stool as a Christmas gift for my wife. Now the kids love it so that they can play with water in the sink and help mom with cooking.

That is a nice stool. My first woodworking project was a table for my scroll saw. The second was a stool to sit on to use the scroll saw. Those were my first two projects, and also made from scrap wood glued together. I lurned a lot from just those two simple projects.
