I wanted to keep going with the stool so Sunday saw me making the perimeter cross braces and the seat
I needed three cross braces at an angle of about 30 deg and the foot rest at 90 deg
As I had lots of off cuts from the frame shaping I used them to widen the braces at points of attachment
Trying to workout the correct angles to cut material for a 45 deg angle and incline of 30 deg then a taper for 5 deg for the braces saw me give up, so instead I just kept cuttng and fitting until I got it right.
I even had two saws set up to do it.
No doubt there is possibly a formula around some where but I could not find it!
I left them to let the glue set and started to profile the seat
The seat work
For the seat I used a Arbortech Turboplane fitted to an angle grinder.
For the frame I used a Guinevere flexible shaft fitted with a 50mm microplaner.
Both remove timber faster than a Wet Beaver building a dam!
That was enough mess and noise for today so I cleaned up and packed up.
