Step 1: Design
I used three different pieces
30 of 35x8 cm (foot)
28 of 5x8 cm (spacer)
16 of 5x30 cm (top)
The idea it's overlap
1 top, 2 foots, 2 spacers, 1 top, 2 foots, 2 spacers, 1 top, ...
Step 2: Materials
A lot of reclaimed wood and some glue
Step 3: Choose Reclaimed Wood
To choose the pieces of wood, you will need consider the long and width of the pieces you will need and ALL the pieces will need to be of the same thickness
Step 4: Clean the Wood
The reclaimed wood has a lot of nails that we need to remove or can cause problems later.
Step 5: Time to Cut
First I cut the pieces to the width desired for do this I used a table jigsaw later, I cut the pieces to the long desired with a miter saw, at the end I discovered some pieces at the exact size of the spacers
Step 6: Time to Glue
In this part, I glued a sub-assembly of the footstool, to do this I built a frame to make the work easier. I have used screws to keep the sub-assembly together until the glue dried after 60 min I unscrewed all the screws
Step 7: Time to Glue It All
I glued three subassemblies each time to ensure the alignment, I left it dry for 60 minutes between steps once ended I left it dry all night.
Step 8: Sanding
First sanding with 80 grit sandpaper and then with 120 grit sandpaper
Step 9: Finished
Participated in the
Reclaimed Wood Contest 2016
