This is a stool I just finished for my shop. It will make working on the scroll saw much more comfortable. Got the plans out of woodsmith magazine. It is hard maple with padauk and purple heart crossgrain inserts in the legs and finished with Deft. I really like working with the maple. I got to try a little veneering on the band under the seat. First real project in my new shop.

Great looking stool! Looks perfect for scroll sawing. Do you remember which issue of woodsmith the plans were in?

Great looking stool Bruce. I have that issue of WoodSmith so I might just have to re-visit that project. By the way where is the handrail for your loft stair? LOL!!

I have a threading kit. Maybe I could make a maple screw? Wouldn’t be able to spin the seat and make it fly though. Nice work!
