« Part 2: Day 2 and three Part 3 of A simple Pine Stool series no next part

4 days to build a simple, little stool? getting slow?
Ok, wasn’t too happy with the surface left by the spokeshave…..ran this router around, with the smallest round-over bit I had..

Even rounded over both the top and bottom edges of the top…

And, each part was sanded to 180 grit….then the glue….discovered later that one wedge was too fat…as I hammered in the two to connect the stretcher to the legs…..OOoooops.
I did get all 6 wedges in place for the top, without too many problems…

Two of the tops wedges were acting “funny” to looking at the legs, again….they were made from a glued up panel sold at Lowes… of the glue joints was trying to come apart….needed clamps and more glue to fix the splits going on..

The fat wedge for the stretcher, was also doing a split….it also prevented things from closing up tight…orange clamp for that…..Let this mess sit most of the day….

Later, after supper, removed the clamps…sanded the wedges down flush..

End view? Time for a PIP?

From the side….this is not all that big of a project….top is 11-3/4” long,, by 8-1/2” wide. Stands 8” tall…

A view of the top….almost hard to tell there is three boards in the top..

Underside. That is about it, for the woodworking part…will post when the finish is done….Boss wants it for either a foot rest, or a plant stand….

Thanks for looking in!

Like the way those wedges add contrast to the piece
