Dozen With Production Jigs

his little stool is patterned after an old-time farm milking stool but at a smaller size to make it convenient for a child to sit on.

The stool is simple to make and takes a minimum of material. You may want to make several of the stools at one time as I do. The three shop-built jigs shown here make the construction easy, whether you're making one stool or a dozen.

I made the seats from white ash and the legs from red elm, although you could choose any strong hardwood for these parts.
