Organic stool from Pine

I saw a stool made in wood from a CNC metal one created by Michael Makarevich of the (CrazyRussianWoodShop) and decided to attempt to recreate the same myself.

I made mine from pine and used biscuit joints for the joints

It was an interesting activity for me as the maths involved with splayed angles is something on its own.
However I managed to create a “rustic reproduction” called rustic as a means of passing off the Oppses as its a bit of a roughie for a first attempt.

I started off with two frame bases to build on to maintain dimensions and use as a platform to measure and check parts as I assembled them.
I then replaced the top with a seat and removed the bottom base upon completion
This is what the original one Michael made looked like.

I didnt have any measurements just the photo images to go on. so its all estimated dimensions.

The frame internals

Then the outside footrest and diagonals

The seat is some oregon pieces glued together

The sculpting commences, talk about wood snow it was everywhere!

Then sanding just a little sanding and some Cedar staining was applied

And here is the finished project

Pretty amazing! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful. You make it look simple. Shaping after assembly – simple and genius. Good job.

It looks like it grew right up out of the forest floor. Your approach to building it was ingenious.

very cool rc has an organic look to it. got a little of that maloof style shaping going on also.
That is a sharp looking stool, and it looks like it would be comfortable to sit on. Well done.
