Rustic Stools

My wife fell in love with some stools on a website for a home improvement show. So I drew up the plans and built them over a few weekends. I also built a set for a neighbor. The trickiest part was getting the angles right on the bottom cross brace. It had a bevel and an angle. I distressed them, then stained them with a dark walnut and a satin finish. We are super happy with them and they only cost about 10% of what we could have bought them for online!

These are awesome! Not surprising at all that you've already built a second set- who wouldn't want these? Those bottom braces do look like they required some skill to get just right- you nailed it, though! Very nice work, as always.

I made a set of bar stools but when I sat on them they blew up. I am a little leary of making anymore. Did you use a pocket jig to fasten your legs a braces together?

I used pocket holes and wood glue for all of the joints. They are very strong. I did put some screws in at an angle to attach the cross pieces at the bottom. I just covered those ones with wood putty and you can hardly see the screws. We have had them almost a year and they are still solid. Let me know if you have any more questions.
