    Drill press tables are over-rated, unless you need to drill wildly inaccurate repetitious holes. 😉 Since I do that all the time I have more money in my drill press table, fence, and stops than many woodworkers do in their drill presses. With built in 1/32″ scales for the fence location and stops in both directions I seldom mark a hole location on the workpiece. Just set everything up and go.

    You sure are getting good with the bandsaw. I noticed you didn’t even have to sand the edge of the seat before you put the roundover on it.

    Oh yeah, I must have missed the part in the video where you take a flying leap onto the bar stool to test it’s strength. If you haven’t done that yet I expect we’ll see it in Mere Minutes. Just be sure to were these, safety glasses.

    I love this design. Not too far off the design I used. When I first made mine it was made all from 2X4 scrap cut into square stock. The seat was then laminated together with glue. Then up at the top there was a 2/3 width set of 2 x 4 with a lap joint to attach the seat. Then 3/4 the way down the same width of 2×4 were used as braces joining opposite corners.

    Another great project! I’d like to know how you determine which angles to use. Why 19 degrees instead of 20? Why 7 degrees instead of 5 or 10?

    Was that the first one you made or did you make a practice stool sample first?

      It’s good to see middle school age children expressing an interest in woodworking.

      A stool has been something I been thinking about building for awhile now, but chairs are one of the areas of woodworking I’m clueless on and this really just blew my mind on how actually simple it was to make it. Thanks Steve!
