This is my first project post to LumberJocks. It is a stool I built for my Daughter from scrap pieces of walnut, cherry, and maple. The finish is one coat of BLO followed by three wipe-on coats of gel topcoat.

Well, as my buddy BrianM says, “there’s no such thing as scrap wood”. Nice design. Good use of those left overs.

The truly great thing about making family pieces like this is that while you’re building furniture, you are also building memories that will last a lifetime and then some. As always, bbqKing

RobS – The legs are attached via a butt joint using pocket holes. I was not about to attempt a sliding dovetail joint on an angle!
