DiResta: Shop Stools


This week I am on location in Louisville, Kentucky, working for Bulleit Bourbon. I am working with a team to create the elements for the visitor’s center. We are working in a temporary shop put together just for this job. It has not been lived in, and is lacking simple elements — such as stools.

In a shop, a stool is more then just a seat. It is a temporary table for your drill while you work, a place to set your lunch while you sit on another stool. A place to paint. In this video, I make a fast set of shop stools, mostly for sitting. I use one sheet of plywood and a simple method to make a circle with the table saw. Please enjoy.
