Use shop-made jigs, smart calculations, hand-tool techniques and more as you learn how to build a stool that's sure to be the best seat in the house. With Philadelphia Furniture Workshop founder Alan Turner as your guide, you'll start by cutting, then pattern-routing your stool's legs, and turning tenons on the lathe. Build the skills to drill compound angles for the seat, saw and clean tenon shoulders and assemble your joints for a perfect fit. You'll also create a variety of angled joinery to give your piece a unique profile. Alan will teach you to shape an ergonomic seat top using a gimbal jig, and add curved leg stretchers for an even more eye-catching design. Finally, level and chamfer the legs to finish a sophisticated stool with maximum stability.
