« Part 8: Maloof Stool Raw finished Part 9 of Furniture series Part 10: Re cycled Jarrah stool Sculpted and sanded stage 1 »

If you read my Sledge Hammer blog I initally started making a wooden stool from all the Jarrah off cuts I recovered from my Potato Crate repairs.

Well I got active on the weekend and started.

The seat

I used a off cut for the joint tongue

Once I had a reasonable fit I glued it up and began to route the rebates for the legs.

The legs

I tried to make the legs from some some of the stock

But after cutting the tenons I decide they were in fact too big and would look out of place.

So I then found enough material from the boards.

Drew up a pattern, then used my table saw to cut the grooves, and then took to them with the band saw.

Did some initial rough out sanding.

All fitted up OK so I glued them all together

My wife Aurora was impressed with my work and wanted a photo too

To be continued.

-- Regards Rob

Very nice Robert, you are getting quite good with this very useful and nice looking joint. You know you are doing something right when your lovely wife willingly poses with your work!

You seem to really have this joint down now. That is so cool.
