This is my first foray into staked furniture making. I bored the mortises with just a brace and bit and cut the leg tenons from square stock and shaped the round end with a spokeshave. If I make other staked furniture I’ll be picking up a conical reamer and making a DIY tenon cutter. Wood used is European beech for the top and white oak for the legs. The finish is the opposite of epoxy, it’s OSMO. I like the natural, close to the wood feel it provides. Plus very minimal smell.

I made a YouTube video of the last touches and finishing. Not exactly a DIY instructional video or even a video covering the entire build. But if you like woodworking and have 4 mins to spare you’ll probably enjoy watching it.

That is a very nice project, Ben, and well done. Your photo of the stool in use is charming. I’m sure you’ve made a little girl very happy.
