2a 2b

Size: 23″ high x 14″ wide x 8″ deep


  • 1x 8′ long framing timber 2×10, ripped down and milled flat on four sides
  • 16x 2″ screws
  • Titebond II

My greatest challenge during this build was laying out compound mortise and tenon joints, and cutting them all by hand.

I decided to build a rectangular saddle stool mainly because of the limited space I have in my shop.  I have less than 180 square feet, and the rectangular shape and height lets the stool hide under my bench or in a corner without eating up much floor space.

For the next build off, I’d like to see something that uses mechanical motion, like a folding card table/tv tray or the like.

Anyway, thanks for everything, Chris.  This was an absolute blast, and a great project for my little garage shop.


I would be delighted if you left a comment!
