Sturdy Stool for Home or Shop
Comfortable and quick to build, it fits the workbench or the kitchen island
This cherry stool by Christian Becksvoort has all the elements of simplicity and comfort: square tapered legs, round rungs, arched rails, and a curved, upholstered seat. The legs are tapered on their inside faces and the corners eased with a router for a more rounded look. The seat rails are attached to the legs with angled mortise-and-tenon joints. Becksvoort turns the rungs on the lathe, but you could shape them by hand instead. The curved seat is a lamination of five sheets of 1/8-in plywood.
