Default I did it because of Curious George

Quite recently Curious George showed us a folding stool that he had made, he also posted a shot showing the cutting details in addition to which he posted a U tube link to a video of a guy making one of these stools. I said at the time that I had saved the links and would at some time make one because it intrigued me.
Well yesterday was the day so I made one, three times I had to pop indoors to re-watch the video and to print three screen shots showing the assembly which is quite tricky.

Another excellent photo tutorial Harry. I am saving this to my subscribed threads to help me thru this project when I get around to making one after the holidays are behind us.

Thanks for taking the time to share it with us Harry.

Way to go, Harry! It came out perfect and I loved your rounding jig.
