I saw a stool like this in a boutique made of plywood and no inlay for $250. It had a dowel for the center rod. I thought I’d show them up,...quietly, in my shop. So there.

I originally typed “Mahogany Fool Stool”. Maybe that is a better name. (I edited it but it didn’t seem to change the correction. However.)

I saw “Fool Stool” on the projects list too and then suddenly it changed to “Footstool”” There must be a delay in changes made . . .

Nice stool by the way !

That’s a fine stool and I love the joinery. Congratulations.

One great looking and sturdy stool, like the awesome joinery and the touch of inlay.

They’re actually dovetails, but the pictures don’t show that very well.

They’re just sitting on the stickers to dry.
