Miranda seen this on one of the blogs she reads. This is made from pallet wood. I think it's Oak. All the build supplies were free minus about 25 cents worth of Walnut oil to finish. Pottery barn sells these for 35 bucks.
I finished my shop wall bump-out minus some drywall on the inside. I up-cycled the old wall and made this lumber cart. This was a much needed addition to the shop. It has casters but it's pretty heavy and not very easy to move.
Here's another stool I made. Minus a table saw, planer, jointer, chop saw and band saw, this was done completely by hand. I shaped the seat, legs, and cross members with spoke shaves. The stool is quite comfortable and very light even though it's made from Oak. I ebonized the wood with my vinegar/steel wool mixture which gives it the black tone.
Unfortunately this one doesn't 'match' the others so it's on to rustic bar stool #5...
Stand-up desks are all the rage at work. There's supposed to be all kinds of health benefits, you stay more alert, etc, etc. I moved desks at work so I'm trying it for the time being. We'll see how it goes.
Anyway, a co-worker uses a stand-up desk and his china made stool broke into pieces. Fortunately no one was hurt. The top part was still good so I made a new base.
The legs are made from a nice tuba-for.
The dowel cross members have a walnut wedge to hold the joint tight. These are super strong.
