A fairly simple barstool made using 100×25 decking timber.

Step 1:

I cut four lengths of treated 100x25 decking timber to 740mm

Step 2:

Using the circular saw I notched out the top section to approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the thickness of the timber. I also notched in the lower section at 400mm from base.

Step 3:

I cut 8 lengths at 300mm and slipped them into the notches. I glued then screwed 4 into place. I then drilled and screwed the two sides together using the other four lengths.

Step 4:

I cut four lengths to 320mm and nailed them on top. A quick sand and a coat of polyurethane to finish it off.

Step 5: Some Added Photos of Details and Finished Product.

    Just set the depth with the saw blade and slice across thinly then use chisel and scratch off the excess to a reasonably flat surface. You are hiding it anyway so it does not need to be pretty. It provides a good surface for the glue to adhere to.
    I dont own a router so this is my option.
