I am getting ready to start a stool for use at my bench. This design fits in with my overall mid century aesthetic and has a Danish cord seat woven on the top. I have drawn it with 5/4 material for the seat portion and 4/4 for the legs. **These dims may change, I am waiting on an older Fine Woodworking Mag that features a low bench with a similar style and plan to use the thicknesses from that.
So what I am really looking for is some input on the seat to leg joint as I have drawn it so far. I plan to attach the leg to the outside seat stretcher with the largest domino I can (thickness dependent). With the other 4 low stretchers I was feeling pretty good, but the late night demon got me and I could use some input.
The last picture shows what I was thinking as an alternative; to let the legs (5/4 here) extend to the top and attach the seat stretchers with m/t to the legs.
