    My DIY Shop Stool for the Workench

    Here is a shop stool for the workbench I recently made from construction lumber.

    Total height 27.75 inches (70.5 cm)
    Seat base diameter 11 inches (28 cm)
    Leg base diameter 13 inches (33 cm)

    Made with screws and a few kreg joints on the leg bracing.
    It is surprising stable and sturdy.
    The three legs make it look lopsided when viewed from the side.
    Maybe I should have gone with four legs.

    No, stick with the three legs. It will sit firmly on an uneven floor

    Nice job. How did you get the circular top, circular?
