    OK CJ21: You are into stools. Here's your 1st commission. Build me a one legged milking stool. Materials are one (1) white oak board. 3 1/2" x 10" x 3/4". Sanded as smooth as a baby's rear end. (2) An Osage orange pedestal. 16" long, preferably from a trunk that has enough size to be split into a single unit with 4" to the sides of the triangle, with a 33 degree bevel on the bottom. Predrill three holes to accommodate 3 eight penny nails in the board and attach to the Osage Orange pedestal. Bring it to me from Calif, and I will let you test it on this Jersey cow I got.

    CJ --

    That looks very good. If you get "The New Yankee Workshop" in your area, I'd recommend tuning in. I don't think anyone else on the planet has the assortment of tools that Norm has, but the basic techniques he shows may help you.

    Cj keep up the good work,looks to me like you might be beginning to see what type of future employment you'll be involved in once ya graduate HS. A man working with his hands to build what he wants or what a customer wants is a very fine occupation. Keep up the good work lil brother you're doing great.:big_smile:Sister Pat

    That looks great. I know someone will enjoy it a lot.
    I built one for a lady at church, Where she could prop her feet up while sitting in service. And need to get busy, have 7 more to build for the rest of the lady's that need one.
    Here is a few pictures of the one I did. If you like It I can get you the size of it.
    This size works great for people to prop there feet up while sitting down.
