      The first vid on my channel and arguably a test run. Watch any of my newer videos for better editing... But the music is awesome.. you just have different tastes.

    Can't believe you used the table saw free hand, (keep that up, it won't be long before you're missing some digits,) then went to the "Go To Tool" Bandsaw and finished cutting the circle. Why not go straight to the bandsaw?

    • TreeCycled
      TreeCycled  24 days ago

      I didnt have the band saw in my garage at the time or i would have, i ended up using my friends saw, which is seen in the video. Its not an advisable method. I dont advise anything really, just showing my experience. I have all my fingers. Thanks for watching!

    The final product is interesting, but the video is too long. It shows every and each step of the construction repeatedly. So, it gets a little tiresome to watch, besides it is not a hundred per cent reclaimed pallet, vou used plywood as a base.

    • TreeCycled

      This is the first video i uploaded to my channel and the editing could have been a lot better, ive learned a lot on video editing since this. But that plywood did come from a pallet.

    Very IMPORTANT STEP about drilling the holes in the seat for those legs is the holes should have been drilled EXACT SIZE on an angle that you wanted for those legs to spread out at the bottom and it is a compound angle and the way you drilled them oversized like that if you use that stool much at all it wont be any time at all until they become loose and fall off

  • Casper's Cuts
    Casper's Cuts 10 months ago +1

    I admire the amount of time you put into this project, thanks. A couple of things I picked up here, one I have never seen someone laminate a stool leg with a centre dowel. Very interesting and I suspect stronger then hell. The other I found interesting was how close you got to a circle with just the table saw. I likely would have gone to the band saw sooner, but hard to argue with the results. Did you think about doing a round over on the seat top, to soften the edge on the back of the legs (just a thought)? Keep up the good work.

    • TreeCycled
      TreeCycled  10 months ago +1

      The legs are very strong! The table saw trimming was actually pretty dangerous and im surprised more people "safety police" haven't gotten on my case about it. I didn't have a working band saw at the time, but i brought it to a family members wood shop and finished the trim there. I should have just trimmed the entire thing with his band-saw but i was impatient.. oh well/.. The stool itself was more of a idea that formulated around the legs, and as a result It ended up quite wobbly. It sits in a corner holding up a house plant at the moment, and im going to rebuild it in a future video though incorporating all the complaints ive had in this comment section! Thanks for watching and check out some of my newer videos if you wanna see more!

    Pretty cool looking stool. I really like the seat design. I'd be a bit worried about the strength of the legs in that the grain of the wood is perpendicular to the length of the leg rather than parallel. If someone sitting on the stool leans to the side the leg may break along the grain. As a work of art, it is really nice!

    You need to learn some safety skills. You are fortunate to have a right hand right now. Like has been said before, if that bit had of gotten into those pliers. OH MY!!!

    • TreeCycled
      TreeCycled  11 months ago

      Those pliers were the best tool i had for the job. Maybe making a wooden pair would have completely satisfied all the safety police, but I completely jigged that table out to hold the squares firm in place. The pliers simply held the corner from spinning as i held the pliers down onto the press table. And the fuggin pliers were in my left hand anyways. If the bit "got into" those pliers that cheap ass harbor freight fostner bit would have chipped at best, i certainly wouldn't have lost my right hand! good lord.

    You know how when you've worked really hard on a new technique/project and you get many, many hours into it and it's not looking so great but you just keep on going thinking the end result will pull it all together? Yeah, that didn't happen here. You should kill that thing before it enters your dreams and attacks! My long way of saying I appreciate the experiment and effort you put into this one but man that is one ugly stool! Haha. I think you know that or I wouldn't be saying this. That stain choice...

      I loved it till the end. Haha, it has been thoroughly discussed in this comment section how that stain color was the worst decision of my woodworking life… In retrospect I would have just used tung oil to bring out the color. Im planning on rebuilding this stool in a future video as it is actually completely 100% non-functional experiment. It basically has a planter sitting on it in a corner of my house... And i would have done things much differently now..

  • Gerard B du coudray

    D F... Not using a guide with skill saw at beginning and putting 'metal' push rod against a rotating drill 'Forstner' bit!!! WTF

    • SuburbanHobbyist
      SuburbanHobbyist Year ago

      Are you simply looking to point things out regardless of if there is an actual safety issue?? The way he had that forstner bit set up with the jig was in no way unsafe. In fact, I'm impressed with that whole set up and that he took so much time to jig it up like that. More people should take those kinds of safety measures when using the drill press. Also, nothing wrong at all with how he cut down the pallets with the skil saw? I just don't see your points. Dude seems safe to me. Now that stool he ended up with....I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Haha! JK man.

    • TreeCycled
      TreeCycled  Year ago

      Try using a guide when cutting a pallet apart and tell me how successful you are. Guides follow a flush straight surface, and you will never find that on a pallet... ever. I do it the quick easy way, and its not a problem if you know how to handle a skill saw. At no point did i touch metal to rotating fostner bit.
