This three legged stool is a woodworking project that you can complete in no time. Made from contrasting woods (cherry, walnut and maple in this case) it’ll be an attractive and useful addition to any room.
You’ll need to be able to cut a perfect circle for the seat of your three legged stool. A jjg, like the one we use on the router table, helps make short work of guaranteeing your stool seat is round, not egg shaped. The legs are bored in using the drill press, drilling the holes at a ten-degree angle. Be sure that you index accurately from leg to leg so that they’re evenly spaced around the circumference of the stool.
The edge of the seat should be rounded over with a ¼” roundover bit. This can be done using a router table or hand-held router. A roundover bit is just one of many different router bit types you can use to add style to your woodworking projects.
The stool seat is made from 1-½” thick stock, and is cut to a 10” diameter circle. The legs are simply 1-¼” diameter dowels, cut to 14” lengths.
