  1. Classical Guitarist's Footstool Footrest

    Just recently started woodworking and my brother is a classical guitarist so this was an obvious project for me.. The main footrest is reclaimed white oak with a leather pad and the scissor supports on the side are mahogany plywood i pulled off of some drawers (reclaimed) and some 3/8" dowels...
  2. A simple footstool for my first project

    I have recently completed my first woodworking project. It's a simple footstool for the customers in our beauty salon to rest their feet on. I made this to replace some nasty pink plastic footstools we are currently using. I used rubber wood for this project. It's the only wood in Thailand that...
  3. Footstool for my Morris chair

    At one point this summer I took the time to make a foot stool for my Morris chair. A bit difficult staining to match the chair but got it pretty close. My wife made the cushion for it from a fitted piece of plywood 5" foam and a piece of leather that she was able to find at a fabric store. She...
  4. walnut & white oak footstool

    I made a footstool from wood that I had laying around the house. The top is a log that was cut for firewood. The trestle leg is made from a 4×4 chunk of scrap walnut I bought, by the pound, from Bartley Furniture Company in Maryland. The feet is white oak from a slab I bought from a neighborhood...
  5. Upholstered Footstool

    This footstool was built as a Christmas present for my sister and brother-in-law who live in New Mexico. The legs are joined by handcut dovetail keys (my first attempt at such). The wood is from a pallet that held luan plywood. It turnes out that about half of the luan that my local big box...
  6. My Glued-up, Laminated, Sculpted, OSB Footstool. A Companion Piece to the Rocker.

    I made this footstool as a companion piece to the rocker. I used the same construction process as the chair. I borrowed some of the design elements in the rocker and modified them for use in the footstool. Here is a photo of the stool glued up but not sculpted. Thanks for looking.
  7. Redwood Footstool

    OK, so here's the deal…........ Wife states on a Saturday evening that she would like a "simple footstool" to place under her desk at work. Sunday morning I looked through the lumber stack and saw a nice piece of redwood begging - just BEGGING to become a footstool. Why ANY piece of lumber...
  8. Footstool

    Made this small shaker style footstool out of scrap maple. (I think it came from a Thomas Moser book if you can believe it!) It's surprisingly strong… like easily 300lb weight capacity strong. Never expected that. The kids wanted it stained, so you know, what can you do?
  9. Stool

    This stool was made from some scrap pieces of laminated oak kitchen counter tops that were available after our kitchen remodeling. The two legs are slightly tapered towards the top and tilted towards the sides to provide stability. It has three coats of varnish. I made the stool as a Christmas...
  10. Footstool

    My Uncle Delwin who lived 1896 - 1946 was a skilled woodworker. He was the woodshop teacher at Meridian Ms. High School. He made several pieces of furniture which reside in our old pre-civil war farm house in rural Ms. One was the above footstool. This summer a cousin asked if I would make...
  11. Cherry footstool

    My third footstool is made from a cherry tree that was blown down by a storm. I cut downed trees for firewood, but this cherry was so nice I had to save a little for a future woodworking project. It sat forgotten in my attic for years until I came across it last year (2017). The top wood was...
  12. My convertible "Nursing Stool"

    Let's get this detail out of the way: A nursing stool is a dedicated footstool for use by a breastfeeding mom. It goes under the feet, pushes the knees up and shifts the babe into place. Less back, shoulder and arm stress for the mom. You could use a stack of books, yeah, but people like these...
  13. Adirondack Chairs and Footstools

    A co-worker of mine bought the plans and asked if I could build these chairs for him. He volunteered to paint them as well - all I had to do was the actual building of them. Cool! I have made a TON of Adirondack furniture - the sales funded my entire shop as a matter of fact - but these...
  14. New Legs For Wife's Foot Stool

    My wife wanted new legs on her footstool without wheels and a few inches higher. I used poplar and got to try out my new router table. I put felt pads on the legs and she's a happy wife. So I'm a happy husband. Even though they don't show I routed the 2×2 stock for practice.

  16. My first attempt at a table

    I used my kreg jig for the first time, and used some hardware I had on hand to attach the top 1×10 pine, to the base of 2×4 and some 1×4 poplar. This was before I decided to try my hand at gluing wood together to make larger dimensions it could be a side table or a footstool as I am using it...
  17. Arc top footstool

    This is my 4th footstool and my style is evolving. I am moving away from the natural edge design and into the arc style. I made an arc style walnut bench earlier. It's just a natural evolution. This one is made from cherry, the top is 2 1/2" thick by 18" wide. It stands 13" high. After...
  18. Oak Footstool

    I made this footstool to use around the house. It is based somewhat on the project featured in the January 2002 issue of FWW. The dimensions are 11.25" L x 15" W x 12" H. Instead of doing M&T joints, my base is biscuited together and uses pocket screws to hold the top on. The feet splay out at...
  19. Colonial American Footstool

    This is a Colonial American footstool made from black cyprus recycled from a bookshelf. My feet get sore resting on the metal connecter of my desk so I built this. I accidently rounded off the edges of the skirt where the top rests on so I decided to round off the top too and see how it looked...
  20. Two Ottomans/TV tables with construction video

    As part of the remodeling, I'm beginning to make some of the furniture. We had one old ottoman. I decided to make two new ones and have them double as throw blanket storage and tv tables. This is the result. Two ottomans (hassocks) are made of cherry, finished in waterlox satin. The top pops up...
