Daughter number one wanted one too so here it is.

Top is a slab of Camphor Laurel which is book matched and joined with biscuits.

For the legs I just went for a walk in the bush and found a great long piece of old hardwood which worked very nicely. Tops of the legs have been shaped to fit holes drilled with a 1 and 1/4” Forstner bit and wedged.

I also glued the the legs with a new product I am trying (pictured) which is quite amazing, excess goes to a foam and comes off easily, holding strength is amazing, waterproof, VERY quick dry time; seems great so far. My Nephew recommended it to me and he is a cabinet maker who uses it regularly.

Finish is Scandinavian oil and I will put a couple of coats of wax on the top also.

My daughter is a primary teacher and intends using it in her class for the children to sit on when they have their ‘news day’.

A very nice stool David,
a couple of questions, or four
1. Where did you get the glue from? I found a NZ supplier but that was the closest.
2. Is that Astro turf I see? as nobody has grass that green at the moment.
3. What is the connection between icemanhank and David?
4. Did you use the Structan on the seat edge too?

-- Regards Rob

Hi mate,

My Nephew got it for me so I don’t really know where it came from, he said he can get me some more for $15 a tube from where he works. I saw the Kiwi supplier when I looked it up too.
No it’s real grass mate and yep the mower needs to come out of the shed!
My last name is henry and hence the Hank part and I guess I don’t show a lot of emotion, or so my wife tells me.
No I only tried it on the legs for a first time see how it goes. I should have used it on the seat, it would have been a lot quicker. Nephew says;
‘a 2mm bead about 8mm in from the edge will give you the best results, it amazing how when you sand the joint it completely disappears on the joint line. It will set even quicker when it’s cold and wet, if you get any on your hands thinners will take it off’

Here is a pic of a Blackbutt table top he used it on.

Nice to hear from you mate
Cheers Dave
