I made this stool for my daughter’s sewing table. It’s about 18 inches high. I made it from some walnut boards that were almost entirely sapwood, as you can see from the proximity of the bark edge. Joinery was screws, finished with one coat of an oil/varnish blend. This little bugger turned out to be pretty strong and have the sort of farmhouse look that I like.

Tore, the top is fastened with pocket hole screws from the legs underneath. You can actually see one of them in the second picture. I was trying to hurry and get it done for Christmas, so I took the easy way out. With more time, I might have tried some mortise/tenon joints.
