Reclaimed Wood Stool Plans

Have you ever heard me say I love reclaimed wood?

Of course you have...I say it all the time, it is one of my faves!

I am sharing my Reclaimed Wood Stool Plans with you today!  I kind of love this stool, and don't worry, if you don't have reclaimed wood you can build it with new wood!  So lets get too it!

Supply list:

1- 1x10 board or scraps
1- 1x6 board or scraps
1 1x2 board or scraps
*Ryobi Nail gun and nails
Wood glue
Drill
Clamps
Sander
Finishing supplies as desired

Please note I am giving the dimensions for 3/4'' thick wood in the supply and cut list.  The wood I actually used is 1'' thick reclaimed wood, and it can be more difficult to find, but the cut list can be used for either thickness, or you can use a thicker wood too, modify to fit your needs/wants, the true beauty of DIY. :)

Cut list:

2- 1x6's (3/4'' x 5 1/2'') @ 17''  (Top/seat boards)
2- 1x10's (3/4'' x 9 1/4'') @ 13 1/2''  long point to short point.  Cut at a 10 degree bevel, ends parallel. (Legs)
2- 1x2's (3/4'' x 1 1/2'')  @ 9 1/4" long point to long point.  Cut at 10 degrees off square, ends NOT parallel. (top apron pieces)
1- 1x2 @ 11 3/4'' long point to long point.  Cut at 10 degrees off square, ends NOT parallel (middle support piece)

Finished stool stands 14 1/2'' tall.

After making all your cuts you can start building the top/seat.  Drill 3/4'' pocket holes into the 1x6 boards as shown and attach the boards together with wood glue and 1 1/4'' pocket hole screws.

To build the base you need to attach the 1x2 apron pieces to the legs as shown with 3/4'' pocket holes and 1 1/4'' pocket hole screws.  Make sure to place the pocket holes on the inside and place the aprons flush with the top and edges of the legs.

For the middle support attach as shown centering it on the legs, be sure to measure and check for level.

For the final step attach the base to the top.  Attach with 3/4'' pocket holes and 1 1/4'' pocket holes through both legs into the top.  Also pre-drill and attach 2'' screws through the aprons as well.

Finish as desired, you may want to fill/plug the pocket holes in the middle support since they are exposed.  

Enjoy your new stool!

Hugs!
