Finished up a shop stool. Giving credit where it’s due this is a spin off of one built by Steve Carmichael in his youtube video. And, like every good woodworker, I changed it to fit my on-hand materials. I had 2×2s laying around and the screws he uses are REALLY expensive so went with rabbets for the stretchers then glued and doweled – 3” of foam, faux leather, and a bit of paint completed the project. Great place to park it now and then and at a perfect height to do most bench work. I’m liking it!

Carmichael has a 8-1/2”x11” PDF plan with the video. It’s a great place to start.
