Easy DIY Stool (Scrap Wood Project)

My mom had wanted a simple stool for her house, and Stephen made it happen! This was a super easy plan made out of scrap wood!

Stephen used 2×6 and 2×4 pieces of wood for this project. He cut one piece of 2×6 to be the length of the stool (in this case, it was about 15″ long). He then cut two pieces of 2×6 wood for the height. He made this stool 8″ high, which includes the 2×6 across the top. The 2×6 is actually 1.5 inches thick, so he made the two side pieces 6.5 inches tall. He cut a 2×4 to the length of the distance between the two stool legs.

Stephen used wood glue along with pocket hole screws. He covered the holes up with wood putty. After sanding the entire stool, this is what it looked like!

I used a combination of a few stain colors to try to make a dark medium brown shade. Here is the final product!

This super easy build is very sturdy and solid!
