About This Project

White Pine

I loved this project as soon as I saw it on Ana's site. I made a few changes to the plans in order to suit my needs and also as an excuse to use my new tools. I left out the cross supports in order to accomodate storage underneath the stool and it still retains exceptional strength without the supports. I also used my new router to round the edges on the top peice to give it a more finished feel. I'm really happy with the results and have made multiple for friends and family, both painted and stained.
