Homemade stool (Maybe for observing)

Recommended Posts

Evening all :D

Over the last 2 weeks i have designing and making this stool. It was initially meant to be for university work, then decided i would make it for observing, and finally decided i have made it to Ornate and decorative for an observing stool! I think i will keep it for a child's stool, or small table for now but thought i would still show you some pictures!

It is a simple four leg design, held together with a four piece Mortis+tenon support frame, made from Walnut.

The legs are made from Hemlock.

Just above the legs i have created small square springs entirely from wood using a Ban saw, so when sat on gives a slight amount of suspension and give :)

The top is a single piece of Walnut that i cut, planed and stained my self.

I then finished the stool with a coating of Linseed oil and Bee's wax.

All in all construction took about 1 week :D

Wonderful job, with superb jointing. Great use of different woods, do you study the work of Mackintosh by any chance at Uni?

I do like Mackintosh's Work, and in actual fact used to have some dinning chairs in the style of his work!

What kind of other work do you do?
