This Week in the Shop: Put Your Legs Up On A Little Something (It’s a Stool)

When my grandfather asked for a footstool, I obliged.  He’s one of those elder individuals with a he once built a school with his bare hands and then sent his kids across the ocean to come to this land and earn their fortune type of stories.  Which means if he asks for a stool, show some respect.  Do it right, show some joinery skills.

Hand cut box joints.  I’m not completely there yet, but the joints are getting tighter overall.  The crossbeams give it rock solid marks.  Finished by urethane and the air sprayer.  The method sure uses a lot of spray, but man, it gets the job done in about ten minutes tops.

Make it safe & keep the rubberside down.  If you enjoy this blog, could you like WoodshopCowboy on Facebook?  You might even get a Simple Tea Box!
