« Part 1: Laminating a Seat Part 2 of Scrapwood Stool series Part 3: Putting it all together »

I had the most apprehension for fitting the legs to the stool. It’s the first time I’ve tried to do an angled mortise. But it actually turned out ok.

Sawing the tenons.

Splitting the waste with my extra large 49mm striking chisel I got on ebay—being used more than expected.

Fitting

Results were better than I expected.

Up next is working on some reinforcements for the laminated seats to soothe my worrying mind.

Looking good so far. Are you working in your living room?

Thanks kaerlighedsbamsen. No no no, I do the layout and design in the living room and then build in the kitchen. Needless to say I have a very supportive wife.

That has to be the most fantastic and minimalistic workshop setup i have ever heard about. Wonderfull that you actually get things done. Makes me wonder what your wife then expects from you in exchange..?

The constraints help me control my tools acquisition, and for a novice like me, helps me focus on the basics for now. She hasn’t asked for anything yet which is starting to get me nervous…
