I have to give credit to WoodWorkingMereMortals as his site was the inspiration behind this project.

It’s basically a stool made from 1 piece of 2×4 with a series of lap joints and glue keeping it together.

This might be one of the cheapest projects I’ve made $2.49 but it was not without its challenges..

I got to know my mitre fence , dado set, lap joints very well.

I’m not absolutely happy with how it came out and I’ll probably try making another one this time workout the errors but my son loves it.

Great little stool! When I first got started in woodworking I use 2X4’s for many projects. I couldn’t afford any of the expensive woods. $2.49 for a 2×4x8 you can’t go wrong! Almost as good as free Pallet wood. Nice work!
