Foot Stool

Postby Dalboy » 09 Nov 2018, 17:40

Been working on a foot stool which will have a padded top and a small storage area

Been working on and off on this stool(more off than on) now complete as far as I am able to go.

The light wooden top is there to add a seat onto it and will hold it to the wooden frame by 4 screws. Made from Oak with a MDF base and pine seat pad. When the seat is finished I will try and get a photo

Not my usual type of woodworking but did enjoy having a go

C & C welcome what have I done wrong what could I have done different all welcome

If you dont mind me saying for me those legs look a little thin at their base. I am sure you will find a better mechanism for holding the lid up too.
cheers

if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then

Gas struts like these are easily available on the bay, very cheap too:

The thing holding he top open is nothing to do with the stool only there to hold the top open for the photo. This is not very large stool.
