We can not stop building stuff with our new power tools. We like to grill out a lot but we have nothing in our yard to put plates down on or anywhere to sit. I sketched out some designs for this stool yesterday morning. If it went well I knew we would embark on more elaborate projects but this is all about simple and quick. We went and picked up some of the cheapest roughest boards they had and had the whole thing put together and stained by 7:30. It is rock solid and the base is remarkably level. Blair was mostly in charge of the staining. I love the light gray and the tiger stripes. Time to draw up some more plans, bigger, better, prettier!
