Off Cuts

I started making some of these.
Out of some bits and pieces that were gathering dust.
I used a sliding bevel as a guide for drilling the holes..
Handy for hanging up jackets and dog leads. Along with a hornbeam topped stool with ash legs..;b

Tall stapled stool..

I finished this stool over the holiday weekend..
Slender ash legs and a diagonal bracing.. Wedged through tenons hold the legs to the top..
Oiled up in the spring sunshine... ;b

Stapled Stool

I started cleaning up an old bit of oak that's been used as ballast below my workbench for the past few years this is going to be top of a stool..
It has a couple of shakes in it but they're stable.. So instead of cutting this part off I made some staples out of a copper boat nail..
The legs are ash which will give a nice contrast..;b
