In this video, I build a (two, actually) stool using 1″ square steel tube and reclaimed wood, that’d be suitable for a counter height table. I’ve got a counter height table with exactly zero chairs or places to sit around it, so I figured a couple stools might be a halfway beneficial project.
I’d never built a stool before and while there are a couple design changes I’d make if I were to build any again, I had a lot of fun using the carving wheel – first time for that – and firing up the welder.
The lumber I used for the seats came from a house built in St. Louis, MO in 1886, and the steel is just regular ol’ square tube. I didn’t include the making of the wooden feet in this video because it was already longer than I wanted it to be, and I’ve built the exact same thing in another video (the reclaimed wood + steel coffee table).
Plans for the stool will be available – for free – on the website in the next few days.
Thanks for watching!
