Second Pine Stool

November 26, 2013

This was second jointed stool. One of my other posts is a day by day work log of all the various actions involved to make it.

All total about 28 hours of work.

This one is a little “fancier.” I put a little decoration on this one and put stop chamfers on the bottom rails so that my lady can rest her feet on them.  The tennons are nearly 3/8″ verses the 1/4″ from the first one, also the mortices are much deeper.  This time none of the tennons cracked when I used the spoon bit to bore the holes (something I really struggled with on the first one), so this stool got assembled without the glue.  A coat of linseed oil and it was done.

As with the first one, this stool was made from the white pine trees at the back of my city lot. The next one will be in oak.
