some local cherry and a branches from a spruce tree from my yard became this little stool. My first try at Rustic Furniture. 1.5” holes with a forester bit in the seat and 5/8” holes in the legs. whittled down the 5/8” tenon cross ties for the legs and used a “pencil sharpener” bit from Leigh Valley for the seat tenons. walnut wedges for the legs. let it sit in the sun for a week to darken up the cherry, then a thinned down coat of polyurethane and bees wax polish.

Very nice. The color of the cherry and the exposed leg joinery looks great.
