Step 1: Step 1

First, you want to take 2 wooden poles and cut them to your liking. You will want to cut them down to the height you will sit down. You should measure and mark each cut spot to be as precise as possible. Then cut each piece.

Step 2: Step 2

You will drill a hole in the middle of all four rods. Then put the bolt and washers into the holes of 2 rods. Then put the nut on. You will want to tighten it and arrange it to form an "X". Repeat this step twice.

Step 3: Step 3

You will cut the remaining piece of your rods to create to smaller rods. You will want to cut them to your preference because you will be sitting on it. Next, you will drill the rods on the two "X" pieces like in the picture.

Step 4: Step 4

You will roll the tape around the two support rods like in the picture. It is recommended that you make a few thick strips then go across to create a thick layer of tape.

Step 5: Final

Your stool should look something like this.
