« Part 2: Fitting the legs Part 3 of Scrapwood Stool series no next part

The final pieces came together, but as usual I feel the final stages of my projects have the most frustration and mistakes probably due to impatience. Nevertheless, I think starting out with a pile of off-cuts a month ago, and now having a small stool is a positive thing.

Firsts for this project:
Lamination
Angled compound joinery

Lessons:
When laminating wood, take care in having a consistent grain orientation
Go slower with spongy-pine
Depends on the wood, but be generous in width of kerfs for wood
Study up on layout tips for angled compound joinery

After this project, I find myself interested in working my way up to a full sized chair, hmmmmmm.

This project is superb, I can really relate to your point about “the final stages of my projects have the most frustration and mistakes probably due to impatience”. The summary about project firsts and the lessons is a nice touch.

I also really like your plane as well.
