Me too… Looks like an easy way of using some scrap!
I wonder what Twine goes for nowadays… I don’t remember the last time I bought Twine!

Oh, I meant to say, this little stool was in a Woodworkers Journal email I got today…
... I thought this link would have a better chance of staying around.

I think he said he used 500(+) ft. rolls of twine…

Heck, the twine is going to cost more than the scrap!! :)

I just checked with Home Depot...

Yep, the twine will cost more than the wood!

That’s a switch… isn’t it?!

I build one only slightly smaller for one of my meriit badges when I was a Boy Scout many many moons ago (I’m 66), and I helped my son build one for his merit badge also. Both stools were made with what is really a paper cord about 3/16ths in dia. Makes a really nice stool. Thanks for posting. Brought back fond memories.

Complete Comment with links, etc.


After a little searching and getting help from other Forums,
this is the Twine that I got from Home Depot.

Hey! I just noticed something NEW, for me… I can take the option to “Pick Up my Order at the Store!”... That saves me a lot of walking! (The part I hate the most when I go there!) I just go to the Service desk & pick it up!! COOL!

I decided to get a 2,250’ roll so I could make more than one stool… Don’t know for sure, but pretty close to 4 stools MIGHT be able to be made from this roll… I may have to get a small roll to finish-up… Won’t know until I get there!

I priced the Menard store… after seeing the Shipping Charge, Home Depot was the clear winner for me.

Also, I am planning on rounding over the tops of the Legs on the INSIDE so they do not dig into the body… more on this later…

I am also planning on making mine taller so I can sit comfortably at a scroll saw.

Excellent Joe – looking forward to seeing the results! The home depot thing is cool….if you just walk in and ask for “twine” the kid would likely go Huh?

Yeah Jeff… I walked in, went to the Service Desk, handed her my Order Confirmation, & it was just about done! I didn’t have to walk anywhere else to get it! It was BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE that feature… They finally listened to me… I suggested that a few months ago…

I got the HUGE roll of twine… NOT looking forward to wrestling it while threading the seat… LOL

Should have enough for 4 seats…
