Our three-legged fireside stool is simple, yet elegant, completed over two evenings. It’s a great introduction to woodworking—in fact, it is the first project every student undertakes in our Discovery Boatbuilding program. Comprised of three octagonal legs that are fastened with wedged, kerfed through-tenons, this stool is a great introduction to boatbuilding techniques on a smaller scale. It is perfect for sitting by the fire, working in the home shop, or a plant stand. No woodworking (or boatbuilding) experience necessary!
