Every new tool deserves a project that features its abilites – for this simple shaker stool, it was the addition of my biscut joiner. This thing boast over 35 biscuts and will most likely neve come apart. Even though it seems a simple project, it was a great way to try out a spray finishing technique I’d seen as well as practice my hand sawing. Not technically cool – but this thing gets a lot of use around the house and is holding up like the shakers said it would! I think I found this project online – free even?

That’s a lot of biscuits! You shouldn’t have any problems with that stool with the large glue surfaces and the way it’s constructed. The only problem with biscuits is while they have a lot of resistance to pull-apart they have very little shear resistance. I try to avoid them in any area that will get a lot of stress. They are great for face frames and other areas where the joints aren’t heavily stressed. Anyway, that’s a nice little stool. Thanks for sharing!
