Step 3: Adding a Top

 I cut another piece of scrap 11 1/2" by 19" to act as the top.  This may suit you fine as a top for your stool.  Just run a bead of glue around the top of your stool.  Center your stool and screw it to the top.  Sand everything.  My stool will eventually get an upholstered top.  I am going to cut a piece of foam and add material later.
