Simplest stool modified

Submitted by Morrell272 on Mon, 03/24/2014 - 09:43

I modified the height to 36 to work with my workbench height. I also used 1x4 poplar in four pieces for the seat. I stained half golden oak and half cherry. I made the seat 14 inches around.
I had trouble getting the pocket hole bit into the last leg of the stool once the full box shape was assembled. The top smallest pieces I had to tighten by hand. Also the seat even when larger than 12 inches shows some of the base 2by2.
Otherwise it looks great. My height is what I needed and the stain and clear coat are perfect.
I will be looking for more projects on this site.
