I found a beautiful piece of figured Maple with some wild pattern and decided to make a foot stool!

I used mortise and tenons for the legs and stretchers, with Wenge wedges on the leg stretchers. It was my first attempt at through-tenons – they weren’t perfect, but overall I was happy with it!

Finish was 3 coats of boiled linseed oil – mineral spirits – poly mix.

That is a simple, cool, and solid looking design. I’d like to try and make one myself. Good job!
