Small Three Legged Stool.

Life has a way of crowding out the things we like to do with other things we have to do. I have been enjoying my summer and it has been a while since I got a project and video out. I was watching Paul Sellers on youtube the other day and he was doing a demonstration on various techniques in the making of a simple small three legged stool. It looked like such a fun simple project. I escaped a few evenings into the shop to see what I could come up with. Some small pieces of maple I had left over and we were on our way. I glued up the legs out of 3/4 stock and glued up a panel for the top. Turned the legs on the lathe with a one inch tenon on the tops of the legs. All of this was done off of camera as I was not originally planning on making this a video for my channel. I consider this project a skill builder for me and I was just enjoying the process more than anything on this project. I hope there is something that you will take away and use in your projects in the future.

    Nice stool! You make nice stuff.

    I'd love to see some of these things you've made written up in a step-by-step format, if you ever feel so inclined :)
