This small shop stool took me three hours after work making happy hour worthwhile,

I wasn’t sure how I was going to do the legs, I kind of only had plywood on hand so ripped the legs on the radial drop saw.
Put the inch dowel through which made it nice and strong.

Made it to fit under my woodwork vice, not a lot of room in my workshop so its perfect.

Rubbed Teak oil into it probably more for the pleasant smell rather than the look.

Thanks for reading
Anthony

nice looking stool from left over plywood. It might inspire me to build a foldable stool version. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for commenting, I have built folding stools before , they appear on one of my other projects here. I didn’t use round tops though. Ill be interested to see or hear about your folding version.
Kind Regards

Simple sturdy pleasant design.

I’m adding this one to my favorites so I can come back and make a few for myself.

-- When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for

Thanks let me know if you can improve on it.
As you can see ive done the legs like an outside an inside an inside and then an outside leg pattern(hard to explain) so sitting on the bench both sets of legs are identical, I often wondered if I should have built one set of two legs wider and the other set of two legs narrower so one set fit in between the wider set( once again hard to explain)
Ill be interested to hear what you think
