Cut the legs. Cut the 48” dowel into three pieces 16” long each.
Drill holes in the legs. Drill ¼” diameter holes about one inch from one end of the dowels.
Insert wire. Insert the wire into the holes you just drilled and wire the 3 legs together. The wire keeps the legs from coming our of the concrete.

Remove the stool from the bucket. Bend the sides of the bucket outwards a few times in each direction to loosen the concrete; then pull the stool out by the legs.
Sand the edges. The concrete has not yet fully hardened and is pretty easy to work with. 120 grit sand paper can be used to smooth the edges.
