My “Paul Sellers Excersize program” end result. I had purchased about $7 of 2×4 stock and cut all my parts from that. Lots of rip cuts will get your heart rate up garunteed. Truely enjoyed taking this from a couple of ordinary eight foot pieces of lumber to a finished useful piece of furniture. I ‘m starting to get why Mr. Sellers enjoys his craft so much.

Stool turned plant stand. My wife saw me working on this project early on and decided she needed a plant stand more than I needed a stool. Next one for sure is a stool.

Bench Stool by Josh Jenkinson
This was made as a guitar stool from oak (railway sleeper timber) and walnut for the middle part of the seat. The most challenging part of the build was the 7 degree angle on two planes for the legs. I cut these using a home made mitre box with both a 7 degree slope and 7 degree angle on the fence.

A modified version of the bench stool project with two prongs mounted to one of the bottom rails so that the stool can double as a guitar stand when not in use. The seat and guitar rests are mahogany, and the frame is sapele. (The pictured guitar belongs to my brother. I did not make it.)
