Old-Growth Honduras Mahogany Stool

Viewer Project - By Tom Buhl from Santa Barbara, CA
Added on January 19, 2011

A Christmas gift for my daughter, had to be small and very portable to fit young person’s lifestyle. Saw a small stool in a Pop Woodworking article with pleasing shape. Added some drawers, curved surfaces and edges, and tapered and mitered legs to continue flow of Front and Back surfaces.
Created from old-growth Honduras Mahogany salvaged from the Belize River by Greener Lumber LLC. Mostly mortise and tenon construction. Floating, shop-made tenons in a few places. Detailed slide show of finished piece and the process here.

I hope it will have a life appropriate for material born so long ago.
