    Hi everyone – I haven’t been woodworking for approx 15 years but have recently been able to start again. Watching Paul’s videos/reading the blog had encouraged me to try to get back into this great hobby, it’s something I enjoyed making and thought I’d share me design. As I am recently an uncle I decided to make a small stool for my twin nieces as my first project.

    Cheers
    Fraser

    Hi Eddy – I haven’t I’m afraid, I just made it up as I went along :). I have attached some images of the joints I used though if that helps. I would say its about 25x40x15 (h,w,d). I used a spokeshave for all the shaping, something I’d never used before but really enjoyed using one.

    That came out quite nice, Fraser. I like the color of the wood, the grain and finish. Great idea for a project.

    Hi Fraser,

    The stool looks terrific. I love the warm color you achieved with your finish.

    i'd prefer to make it myself

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

    Denise – I used colron French Polish for the finish. Probably about 10-15 coats with light sanding inbetween. I thought I’d give it a try after watching Paul’s shellac video 🙂
