At the time, I told myself I would make something for them as a thanks, and thought it might be nice to make their daughter Annabelle a three legged stool.
|My trusty Spring Pole Lathe.|
|First of the three turned legs.|
The top for the stool was cut out and then shaped with a spokeshave.
|Using a spokeshave to shape the edge of the seat. Held in a bench vice.|
|Holes drilled in the underside of the seat ready for the legs.|
|Legs now driven into the underside of the seat.|
It was time to present the completed stool to Annabelle...
|Annabelle and the nice little stool made from her tree...|
|The stool perched on a stump of the big tree from whence it came.|
