Introduction: Round Stool
First woodworking project: a small round stool made in my grandfathers workshop.
Step 1: Buying Wood
Went to the local DYI store to buy some wood. They didn't have a lot of options so I had to go with this Brasilian pine. At this point I was hoping that it would splinter too much when turning the legs.
Step 2: Glueing the Boards
Using all the glue clamps I could find to ensure the boards would hold together.
Step 3: Sawing the Top Surface and Legs
Used a jigsaw to get the initial round shape of the top surface.
Step 4: Turning the Legs and Rounding of the Top Surface
Step 5: Drilling Holes and Shaping the Legs
Drilled the holes at an angle of about 6 to 7 degrees to spread out the legs. To do this I sawed a 2 by 4 at the right angle and placed it on top of the surface to guide the drill.
Step 6: Shaping the Legs to Fit the Holes
Step 7: Glueing the Legs Into Place and Applying Varnish
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
