Hi Folks, I thought you might be interested in my shop stools.
They are an exercise in router and template use. This basic stool is made from five pieces of MDF. A disc for the seat and four identical pieces for the legs. The whole thing is held together with dowels.
Lots of dowels all the way up the leg joints...
...and under the seat.
In fact the dowels make such a strong joint that it has not been glued. I thought I would see if it would work loose. 18 months later it is still in one piece. The design of the stools can be varied by making more elaborate templates or simply altering the height.
The finished stool.
Hmmm...Looks like I will have to make another one now
