Wood stools were common pieces of furniture throughout the years. Today, you're more likely to see them as short stools (often used as step stools) or in tall form as bar stools or even as shop stools. They can be made with 3 or 4 legs and are very strong.

The tops of stools are normally turned and carved faceplate turnings. And the legs are great spindle projects. If you don't have one around the house, it might be time to get that lathe spinning!


"Bulldog" Foot Stool
By: Tom Hintz
In this short project, Tom shows us how he makes a large, substantial foot stool with turned legs. This is a very solid piece of furniture and most people would be proud to have this in their home.

Tom explains each of the steps and gives us a couple of photographs to help understand the process.


Turning a miniature stoolTurning a miniature stool
By: Alan Liland
In this wonderful tutorial, Alan shows us how to make a small ~6" turned wood stool. This is a great project for people who love miniatures and also for people that want to "practice" before making a full sized model.

Alan makes what for many people is a complex 3D project into a simple set of steps resulting in a great project. I hope that you give it a try!


Turning a Stool - a handy shop seatTurning a Stool - a handy shop seat
By: Tom Hintz
In this project, Tom shows how to make a four-legged stool. He shows how to properly drill for the leg holes in the seat top. And then goes on to explain how to turn the four legs. Tom does a great job explaining 2 of the more difficult tasks in this job; how to determine the length of the bottom rungs and how to get the legs level. With these two explanations, Tom has taken a challenging project and make it doable!

By: Tom Rennie
In this project, Tom explains the historical nature of stools and then shows how me makes one using a manual lathe. It's fun to learn more about the history of the stool and to see how Tom makes one!
