Many years ago, Chris saw a 19th Century Chinese stool at a client’s home. He was drawn to its simple design and complex joinery. The stool is fun to build and makes a useful addition to any shop. Students will use a blend of machine and traditional hand tool techniques to build the stool. The project includes a range of angled and compound-angled mortise and tenon joints. The joints are secured using draw borne pegs. Students will learn how to make tapered legs using a variety of hand planes. The seat is sawn, dished and contoured using a mix of saws, shaves and scrapers.
