Project Information

Here is the stool I made. This is before the stain. I kind of ruined the stain as I stated in my blog. Here is what the actual stool looks like though. I don't have pictures of the stained peice so here is the unstained peice. I am going to be making a new one that doesn't have stain because the stain was too old and it didn't work to well. It was also a muddy looking stain that I should have never put on it to begin with. Here it is though. I have a video on how to make it if anyones interested. If you want a measurments I would be glad to give them to you. Thanks.

Very nice job, Tyler. Chalk the staining off as a lesson learned. I have often said that we learn more from our mistakes than we do our successes. Besides it gives you an opportunity to spend more time in the shop making a second one. Always look for the opportunity in an adverse situation.

I always (well, almost always) leave my errors in the shop as reminders of what I did wrong.

I would say you did a very good job, Tyler. Getting the compound angle of the legs right is no easy task. If the stain looks bad, just use it in the shop and remember on the next one. Good Luck.

Dandy stool, Tyler. I wouldn't really want to tackle that myself.

Good project, Tyler! The angles fo the legs look stylish and sturdy. Enjoy doing what you do even though the final outcome may not be what you thought it would be.

looks like you did a great job. bummer you are not happy with the finish. Could be a good opportunity to strip it and try again though. but I'd probably just make another one like you!

Great looking stool Tyler, looks pretty sturdy as well.
I wish I had started wood working when I was your age. Keep up the good work.

You really made a nice stool there, young man. Too bad about the stain not working, but you sure can take pride in the woodwork.

Good job on the nice looking stool. I think it is hard to stain pine evenly.

Hey, Tyler -

Nice looking stool. I'm in the process of making some and am interested to see how you did yours. If you could give me a link to the video, I'd like to watch it. Thanks in advance for the help.
