Cleaned up with planer and smoothing plane.

You're on form tonight, Frank :) . I didn't know you were old enough to remember that track; still got the white suit and gold medallion?

DW - you take proper care of yourself.

Had to revise the design of the footstool owing to a kickback on the veneered piece of chipboard when cleaning out dadoes. I had a kickback luckily the rear door was open and the piece sailed out into the garden. My heart never missed a beat :D

Under stool picture



Top stool picture with dimensions



A= 12" b= 6 1/2" c= 16mm d=5 1/2" e=4 1/4" f= 8 5/8"

Pleased to report it is very comfortable for use at the computer and stopping the legs from being crossed.

Nice stool, DW.

Do take it easy. I know for myself that when I've been laid out for some reason I tend to get to thinking, "Gee, I feel pretty good. Guess I'll go do..." and before long I realize that, "Gee, I think I've over done it." Boredom starts taking its toll as well.

Take care, MikeW

Nice to learn someone has taken up the idea of the footstool, I bet when Philly sees this thread we will get a Cuban Mahogany job placed on show :)

Posting two other pictures to show the potential use for this stool.



The cushion tray rests on the lap and the mouse works of the tray.

Take it easy :oops:
I had my first visit yesterday to whats called rehabilitation, I reckon I had a work out over 45 minutes that would tax an olympic trainer. Pulse at start nicely relaxed 72, at the end of 45 mins. 105.
Workshop is a doddle after that!
