• Full woodworking plans of our milking stool.


    This is a good project for those new to chair making or hand tool woodworking. It provides the opportunity to become familiar with some important processes including: shaping and fitting round tenons by hand, dimensioning and planing components with a plane, shaping chamfers and levelling feet off the bench top.


    The plans have been designed around the expectation that the project will be completed using hand tools only — no powered tools are required.


    The plans consist of one A1 (22×34") page with all dimensions presented in metric and imperial units. Included are front, side and plan elevations in half-scale, full-scale rendering of a leg, layout out of seat with sighting lines, and a detailed order of process outlining how to make the chair with important considerations to be aware of.


    The plans are provided as a digital download that can be taken to a printers to be printed out full-scale or worked from on a screen.
