Wooden Rustic Stool


Made from oak and spruce


This stool was made from oak that I felled in my garden for the seat and spruce left over from when I harvested Tipi poles earlier in the year. I made this stool entirely from tree to furniture.

First I had to cut the oak log to create the seat using my chainsaw:


Then I cut the seat to shape using a jigsaw:


Then I drilled four holes for where the legs will locate: 


The holes were made wider with a bigger drill bit:


Legs and cross supports were cut from the spruce and sharpened at the ends to be joined:


They were glued and driven in hard with a mallet:


The pegs from the legs were chiselled flat and filled with a mixture of sawdust and wood glue.
The stool was then sanded and finished with oil. 
The finished result:
