I have a lot of pieces of bitterbrush I want to use for the legs for 3 legged stools with Juniper as the seat. Note: it will be difficult to turn the legs on a lathe or to make the tenons in a typical fashion because the leg pieces are not straight but they are very sturdy and will add a lot of character to the stool. also, typical seat size would help also, thanks,

I made this one using a router and a jig I built.

These Veritas tenon cutters from Lee Valley might be what you’re looking for…,180,42288,42299

For a seat size, anywhere between 12” and 16” diameter…whatever feels comfortable.
