Build a funky, chunky timber stool with free plans.
You can never have enough extra seating. Free stool plans are great projects to add portable and comfortable seats for your patio, deck or family room. Many styles and shapes of stool plans are available and many are perfect for beginning woodworkers.
Construct a beautiful turned piano stool, using a lathe to create a graceful spindle body and a standard swivel mechanism.
Use elegant hardwood, such as oak, cherry or maple to match your piano.
Simple stools, using stock lumber and basic tools can be built in an afternoon. Use cedar or redwood to create outdoor seats for your deck, patio or balcony. Choose clear pine or poplar and use bright enamel to paint a cheery stool for the kids. There are plans for many types of stools, including tri-pod, shogun, and gothic hearth styles. These would also be great to sell at craft shows and gift shops.
