My back isn't what it used to be, so when I found myself hunched over an already raised assembly table while sanding I realised that I needed a stool for the shed.
I cut two identical-sized pieces of scrap film-faced plywood and cut a slot down from the top of one and up from the bottom of the other so they'd slide together to make a crossed set of legs. A couple of notches out of each corner and I had a crossed tenon.
Two 300mm squares of 17mm plywood were glued together and then I cut out a sort of bike saddle shape, routed the edges away with a big rounding over bit and chopped out a cross-shaped mortice for the top of the leg pieces.
I then shaped the leg pieces. The original idea was to have a circular seat but when that changed the top of the legs became visible around the seat.
To finish it off, I carved out buttocks indentations, sanded and painted.
It's not going to be a comfy armchair for a long fireside session, but it will suffice for a quick sit down in the shed and it won't take up a lot of floor space when it's not in use.
