Default Inlaid footstool - used the Milescraft kit

This is a little project I've made about ten times so far, usually using re-purposed wood. This is predominantly teak, and it used to be a shelf in a local hospital. It has quite a lot of router content, including round-overs, chamfers and inlay. I put in two interlocking squares of cherry and maple with the Milescraft kit. all parts are joined together with dowels and glue - no metal at all in this. Finish is dye and dark coloured wax, it leaves a very nice tactile surface on the teak after about three coats.

This project makes a great gift, and it doesn't require a lot of wood or much fancy woodworking machinery. It would be a great project for a novice router user.

Nice project, John.

Very nice indeed. That looks like bloodwood to me, or did you stain it?

Thanks for all the nice remarks! It's actually teak, stained with mahogany dye, and rubbed with dark wax. It's a design I've made about ten times, I really like it. I'm about to start another one, that one is gone to a new home. I'm trying to improve my process steps for doing the inlay this time to make it quicker and less tedious.

My Dad used to make stools of rather similar size, for everybody in our family. - Probably got so easy to do!
Lovely. Thanks for showing.
