I finally got around to making a stool to go along with my workbench. Top is curly maple and hand caned with the rest cherry. Legs are splayed at 2.5 degrees in both directions.

2 1/2 degrees, what a difference in the build and what a difference in the look.
It sits quite attractively under your fine bench and has just the right amount of comfort in the seat to my eye.
They’ll both outlive you.
The mixed mortises look to be just for fun. Very nicely done.

Nice stool and nice bench too.
I made a shop stool a few years ago and I use it every day. You will never regret having this beauty.

Wow, this is awesome. I’ve been wanting a stool for my shop and was considering some store bought one. This totally blows that away. You’ve inspired me!

OK, so now I am really embarrassed by the work bench stool I cobbled together in an hour. Mine is functional – yours is cool. Nice job.

That is one sweet piece of craftsmanship. It’s a perfect compliment to your workbench. (And both are way to pretty to actually use in a shop setting!)
