This is my first posting (only because I have never taken photos of my other projects I have made) of one of my recent projects that I made for a little old lady that suffers from having swollen legs which I hope will bring her some comfort. The stoll was made from some Kiaat that I had lying around with the inlays strips made of Teak and American Ash cut on my table saw and then sanded down equally before been glued together. I opted to butt join the pieces of the stoll together which are held in place with 4×40mm screws. In total work time the stoll took me 3 hours to complete after which I rubbed in some Watco light walnut oil. The stool design is bassed on a picture that I had seen in a magazine and decided to use it due to the fact that it was very similar in design to one the my Mom had and used when I was a child.

The stool is standing on my router table that I made recently whilst refurbishing my workshop which i stil have a way to go before I have my workshop as I want it.

Thank you very much Mickey, Panga and Jim for your great comments, I really appreciate it highly. As a new comer to this great site and somewhat of a novice compared to many fellow woodworkers on here, it makes it all the more encouraging to want to contribute more and share freely the little knowledge I have, for the benifit of all…. and therefore Mickey i will be posting more pics of my version of the router table as soon as I can clear up the refurb mess in my workshop at the moment… rgds Lucio

Thank you Jeffery, you are right about having one in the house because when my wife saw it she said that she could really make use of one around the house, so guess what…here we go again
