I just made the seat using Pauls method from the dining chair. I used some upholstery fabric instead of leather as it was easier for me to get, and much cheaper.
I was in a bit of a hurry, so I only compressed the foam by kneeling on the plywood while stapling the fabric down. It worked ok, but I think it would have been better if I did it the proper way.
Now that I have had this prototype around a few days it amazes me how rock solid it is. I have almost no experience with anything but modern furniture (from Ikea and similar), and they are all so wobbly and loose. Even if you tighten the bolt ever so often. This little stool feels like it is milled from one solid piece of material.
Right now I am shopping for some nicer wood. I’ll make some small adjustments to the design and then I will make two of them out of cherry.
