My partner is interested in woodworking but seemed to be delayed getting started so I challenged him to build four sitting stools over the month of July.
I choose the number four because:
I'm making some sitting stools, too. My interest is stools that can be stacked easily and I found many great ideas on Pinterest. I was most impressed with a design that stacked horizontally instead of vertically.
I read about them a bit in this Dezeen article. The website for Torafu Architects is www.torafu.com. There is a nice story about how the architects designed this as a joint project with a community workshop established after the tsunami.
These seemed simple enough for me to make. My partner created some drawings for them, making up an angle for the legs.
Before I go further, I want to say that TOOL LIBRARIES ARE AWESOME! We were able to borrow this great miter saw in the photo and it was so helpful.
Making thing is hard! The photo hides a lot:
I took one apart and pretty much redid the whole thing. I made 3 of these so that knocked out most of the month's requirement. ;)
