Kitchen Stool Plans
Kreg Tool Company.
This Kitchen Stool is Made From Solid Wood!
These kitchen stool plans are shown using 3 different kinds of hardwood. The first paragraph of this plan says, "Focus on making two isosceles trapezoid frames, and later connect them together with miter trimmed rails." If those are terms that are not familiar to you, these plans may not be the right ones for you!
BUT, if you like a challenge, these plans can be followed by someone with a higher skill set.
These kitchen stool plans are one of the 15 plans included on the "Pocket Hole Project Plans CD." The PDF for this plan is only 10 pages long, so not nearly as complex as some of those that are 21 pages long.
The CD With These Kitchen Stool Plans is Available from Amazon.
This CD has 15 pocket hole woodworking plans, one of which is these kitchen stool plans. The others include a chair, a simple wall shelf, a desk, a workbench, several tables, and much more. Some of these plans would be suitable for the beginner woodworker, and some are interesting for their complexity!
Woodworking HAND Tools Needed to Build These Kitchen Stool Plans.
This Kreg plan requires the following woodworking HAND tools:
- Kreg jig;
- woodworking clamps;
- tape measure; and
*You will use the compass for the the circular seat.
The Woodworking Power Tools Needed.
Always make sure you
wear your safety glasses
when using your power tools.
You will need quite a few woodworking POWER tools:
- miter saw;*
- jig saw or band saw;**
- electric sander; and
*You will need to be able to bevel cut all of the apron pieces. The top edge needs a 5 degree angle. You will also need to miter cut the rails. Then you will need to bevel the side frames and the feet.
** A jig saw or band saw is needed to cut the round seat.
If you do want to router the edges, as shown in the plan, a router and a 1/8" round over bit will be needed.
List of the Materials for This Kreg Jig Plan?
The PDF has a page entitled a" Bill of Materials", but it should be entitled a "Cut List." This stool does not take a lot of wood, so it should be an affordable project.
The plan calls for several different sizes of Kreg pocket hole screws, as well as some pocket hole plugs. These may not be available from your local hardware or big box store. By clicking on the photo of the screws, you can buy them
directly from the Kreg Tool Company.
to Build This Plant Stand?
Without a list of materials, I also can't give you an idea of the costs. The costs would also depend on the type of wood you use. The plan as shown was built with 3 different types of hardwood: walnut, cherry and maple. If you build it with pine, it would cost much less.
our Hints, Tips and Recommendations!
These kitchen stool plans are definitely not for the beginner woodworker! For beginners we want straight cuts, and no miters or beveling. The plans, however, explain and show how to make those costs, and how to get the assembly of the pieces level.
If you have more woodworking experience, however, these plans could be fun challenge.
For making the side frames, you will be doing some edge joining, so a Kreg Face Clamp would be very helpful. It would also make it easier to make the seat.
The Kreg Right Angle Clamp would be helpful in attaching the side frames together, and connecting the rails
Even though I don't intend to build these plans, it did give me some good ideas on how I could design a simpler kitchen stool plans that a beginner woodworker could build!
