SSBO #33: Sean Wisniewski

33a 33b

It’s 21″ or so inches tall, the seat is 11″ round.

The legs and stretchers are pine, salvaged from an old workbench that was in the basement of my house when we moved in.  The seat is made from a cutoff of maple purchase from Shannon at hardwoodtogo.com. 

My greatest challenge with this build, was the compound angles.  This was the first time I’ve chopped angled mortises and accompanying tenons.  I must say, I’m pleased with the results.  The biggest upset was when I started turning the seat.  A cup in the blank promptly cracked almost completely through.  I relieved the edge under the top, but couldn’t go too far without fixing the crack.  Last night I epoxy filled it.  Today I had mere minutes to see how it was.  Left to do is still final shaping and scooping of the seat.

For upcoming builds, maybe some tool storage.  I like the shop theme.

Thanks again for the inspiration to get my ass in gear.
