Toddler Stool good up to 265lbs :-)Build this on request from my daughter, my grandson didn't seem to like his plastic stool as it was to flimsy.This stool was made with Baltic birch plywood, the top is 16”w x 10” deep, it is about 7 1/2 inches high, the sides are splayed out at a 10 degree angle.The design is my own after obsessing over the various plans that I scrounged from the internet. I liked the semi-circle cut outs on some, the splayed sides on others, the hand-hole on the top and pocket hole joinery made it a faster build.I really like the look of Baltic birch, finished with a clear or semi transparent finish but my daughter wanted it white.Really sturdy!

Just a simple box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Just a simple boxWell I could have named it What another Box! or how to waste a week, instead of just 1 trip to the Otto bin.But what the heck I enjoyed myselfThe timber:
A recycled Red Ironbark house stump. (AKA Mugga)
Age: Estimated to be 80 years old possibly older, calculated on developments in the areaThe process sequence of events and most of the tools used:
Wire brush: to remove initial crud
Metal detector: to find any surprises lurking below
Table Saw: to cut into usable slabs and groove the posts
Jointer: to flatten and square
Thicknesser: to uniform the dimensions
Router: to profile the edges
Bandsaw; to cut the onlays
Disc Sander: to profile the onlays and posts
Various Sanders: to prep the surface for finishing. ( minus the one somebody pinched)
Tweesers: for pulling out recalcitrant splinters
Polishing Kit: for raw polishing the wood to its final finish
Kreg stuff: to use as a squaring platform
Clamps: everybody uses clamps
Glue: as above
and….Beer!Not a lot of prattle here but the process is the subject to a series of blogsTime:
Kept me amused/thinking for almost 1 week
Material cost: Nil
Equipment cost: massive wear and tear this stuff is hard as and almost as bad as Ebony.Possibly will not make history for the highest bid at the Christies fine furniture auction but it was fun!Post edit:I would be remiss of me if I didn't acknowledge a few LJs that inspired me to produce the final ProjectOhad Milner for the onlays
LBD for trying to put a lid on it
Big Al for infecting me with the Box virus
and other LJs that commented and encouraged the craftsmanship to continue (as below)Thank you all !
