Default Stool build

Our new Motor Home has a dressing area desk in the master bedroom, but did not have a stool or a chair to sit on as
Sandra did her hair and makeup. So I received an order for a stool, and this is what I came up with.
I cut the legs on my band saw out of 2x4s and after clamping them together I was able to belt sand them to match
so they were all the same shape. Then I ran them through my router table with a round over bit to give the sides some shape. I used two inch cabinet screws from the outside to pull them good and tight. This with wood glue and they seem to be very solid. I plugged all the screw holes with wood putty since it was to be painted. I added a shelf on the bottom to help stabilize the whole thing and after covering and padding the seat, I hinged it to the stool to make a space under it to store small stuff. Sandra says I need to be taking pictures of my projects as I go instead of the end product.
I'll work on that.

Aw, should have gone with something that would fold, and save space. Something simple, like one of these. Plans at the bottom of the page.

The plans are free, but I accept donations, wood or cash, worn $1 bills only.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Glad Sandra didn't see one of these Theo.

Please David, take your wife's advice, everyone knows how much I for one like Photos and it shows HOW you made the project in question.

No problem, give me her e-mail address, and I'll pass it along.

I liked it David but you didn't turn it so we could see the curved legs so we need at least one more picture.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nice job. Clean, neat, refreshing. It looks like Sandra's happy. That counts big time.

The smile on Sandra's face says it all.

Just count your blessings. She could have asked for a chair.

Sorry about that Charles. She had taken several different stills of the stool but I was the camera man for the video.
I'll try to post a side shot of it for you.
