    ShopNotes Stool

    Anyone thinking of building that stool in the recent ShopNotes? Looks like a nice project although too nice for my shop.

    Hi Brad, take a look at http://www.shopnotes.com/ It is a magazine that comes out every other month. There's almost no advertising and it is very well done. They even punch holes in it so you can stick them into a 3-ring binder. There's a comapnion publication called Woodsmith that has a similar look but different projects.

    Dave,
    I saw that and thought the same thing - much too nice for my shop! My latest issue wasn't punched for the binder. Oversight perhaps?

    Hi Wes, I had to go find my copy to see but it is punched. Maybe you got the special edition.

    I need a stool in my shop really bad. Thats doesn't look like a bad project. But I assume those are metal bands? I prefer it all from wood, simpler for me to make. I don't get shopnotes, but I have in the past. But I like that.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Jeff, I was thinking about replacing the steel foot rest pieces with laminated wood pieces. I haven't figured out exactly how I would join them to the legs. Maybe mortises and tenons?

    Dave -

    Perhaps make the laminated footrest bits into an entire circle, with a notch - and notch the legs. Glued up I'd think that would work fairly well.

    Worth looking at, anyway.

    I just cheated for a shop stool; I took an old roller top outfeed support, removed the roller, cut the roller bracket down, screwed on a chunk of MDF, contact-adhesived on some foam and sometime I'll actually make a cover.

    I got a nice heavy cast base and easy height adjustment for free! And of course, at a pinch I could probably still use it for outfeed support.
    So do I type something witty here?
