I made this footstool as a companion piece to the rocker. I used the same construction process as the chair. I borrowed some of the design elements in the rocker and modified them for use in the footstool.

Here is a photo of the stool glued up but not sculpted.

Thanks for looking.

I never knew that OSB could look so good! Great job, it looks fantastic. Have you ever tried to dye OSB? If it takes well, that would open a lot more options for looks. Thanks for sharing!

Nice orientation of the strands, dude!
I used OSB for the walls of my shop and when I was painting them, surface parts of the OSB would loosen with the moisture of the paint and bubble up. Did you have problems with any of it bubbling up as you were putting the finish on the two projects?
Seeing the before and after sculpturing pictures shows some serious talent and vision.

Once again proving that it’s not the material that makes a project, but the craftsman. Great job.

Another cool piece—and great addition to the rocker.

Great project, both of them! What did you ‘sculpt’ them with?

Had to go back and look at the rocker, which I had somehow missed. Your dust collection system must
have really gotten a good workout to get these finished shapes. Now that you have made your pattern
pieces from OSB, are you going follow James Coles lead and make from walnut? Very good looking chair
and footstool, thank you for sharing this eye candy and the pattern source.
