I didnt have a single board wide enough so I simply used 2 that I will attach together. To make my “perfect” circle I used a nail, string, and pencil.
Scrap Wood Stool
I couldn't believe this little stool was $275 at a designer store so I set out to make my own using materials I already had in the garage!
Draw a circle for the top of the stool
Cut out your circle
Using a jigsaw I cut the circle shape out of my boards
Attach them together
If you used 2 boards, attach them together with wood glue and pocket holes. I also sanded the edges to get it rounder.
Cut your legs
I cut the 3 tripod style legs using a 1 inch dowel rod cut at 10 degrees and 24 inches long.
To attach the top of the legs to my stool I used these little double sided screws
Lots of twisting to get them screwed on in the right position
Looking pretty cute right?
Paint and/or stain
I decided to give my stool a “dipped” look using painters tape. I stained the top and painted the bottom.
