 I decide to make a, Paul Sellers, bench stool for my shop.

Stuff you should know before starting

As always a nice project starts with a nice plan.For this project I use cheap pine and I only use hand tools.Dimensions are 440mm x 440mm x 700mm(You should test for height and position of the feet rail  so it will be comfortable to you)
