Plywood stools: species and creation with your own hands

Furnishing the kitchen, living room, office, veranda chairs, armchairs, maybe, acquiring a sofa complete with a chair, people often forget about such a simple assistant as stool. One or two stools in the economy will not help there, where a full-fledged staircase. Brotherly the same chair or chair can be hard and uncomfortable. They are indispensable where there is no place for a chair or chairs, and you can make such a furniture with your own hands.


Simple stool – these are 4 legs, screwed with a metal frame or “triangles” to the seat. More “advanced” version – use instead of the legs of a few standing finanel sheets of arbitrary shape, which is limited only by the designer fantasy.

Stuffing Stool – product with a small ladder span, in which the horizontal steps form the upward staircase at an angle of 75-80 degrees. Last – “Fellow” Bar Taberet: The simplest ladder is used on bars furniture, allowing a visitor or waiter to sit on the seat near the bar.

Unlike conventional kitchen toaster, the height of which is 45-55 cm, the bar stool has a height of 70-100 cm. “Streed” can be even higher – up to 120 cm.

Folding stool has hinge hinges. It is possible to add to such a transformer as a seat (partially) and the supporting part – legs or stylized plywood sheets that have faded shapes. So that such a design does not work out and the person did not fall, the locking element of the “key” type is provided in the loop. Folding can be made both ordinary kitchen and “flattering” (including bar) stool.

Garden stool has flat and wide stands at the ends of the legs. They protect sharp ends from seeding into loose ground. Otherwise, this subspecies of the bench differs little from the usual kitchen object – it can only be below the kitchen, for example, when a person performs small gardening work.

Wicker stool – Designer solution for the kitchen-living room, veranda or even bedrooms. The carrying design is collapsed by rods from exotic tree plants.

But in the simplest case, the young grape vine can be used, only this year is finally weed.

What you need?

From materials, except plywood, for the manufacture of toreret will be needed carbon black (or epoxy) glue, stainless (or brass) screws, waterproof varnish.

From the tools will require an electrolovka, electric or hand drill, a mill, screwdriver (or twig with bits), a pencil, a tapered line, grinding (with a disk saw on a tree), a square, a brush, a kiyanka (or ordinary hammer), a shoe knife, plain knob, clamps.

Schemes and drawings

Any of dozens of sketches will be suitable as a scheme. It can be both the simplest P- and S-shaped designs with design cuts and classic options with separate legs or ribbed boards that are propylene in any profile. Special attention is covered by stools – “Eights” (the design “Hourglass”), in which the lower line comes into contact with the floor may be absent. The stool may have a small back, to be made in the form of a stylized correct polyhedron, an outbound truncated cone or pyramid, a small barrel without some side walls (faces).

In general, fantasy designers do not know borders. But the design of the type of cube or parallelepiped more relate to the way to the to herds.

The sawing diagram for composite parts can be drawn with a pencil on Watman. If there is no watman – use the spread-out cardboard box from any device. For example, packaging from a TV or oil radiator, preserved from the time of purchase of this device. To all lines are clearly visible, use a marker or a ball handle color contrasting to the color of your cardboard. Next, cut your drawing with the assembly blade or stationery knife – these are sharp, like shaving blade. All items in the ratio of 1: 1 are then transferred to the plywood sheet – it is enough to decompose the sketches nearby, compact, saving the place on the plywood, and carefully circle them. This is one of the most uncomfortable ways to draw Phaneur. Experienced masters are drawn by the details immediately on the plywood.

How to make it yourself?

After the details of the design you choose are drawn and plywood is ready for discharge, you can proceed to this process. To speed up the plywood again, you can not do without an electric bike. As an example, the original “lattice” design is suitable, which can be collapsible, without gluing and swing her details.

The disadvantage – over time, your collapsible stool overlays its technological grooves and ends, and you still have to glue it and twist, thereby turning it into an unbearable subject.

The fact is that every tree is abrained with time, and the grooves, the cracks become somewhat more – it reduces the stability of the design.

We do the following.

  1. With the help of a manual and electrolybiz, carefully and extremely precipitate all the details. It is necessary to apply more effort (on pressing, down) in the direction of the “invalid” part, and not vice versa: one-piece board and plywood often give multiple chips along the saw (cutter).
  2. If the plywood is low-grade and unnecessarily rough, sand it with the emotion (or use grinders with special brushes or emery disks). In order not to mess with every detail separately, grab all the same – for example, elements of seat flooring, with clamps.
  3. Cut the planer with outdoor edges (Röbebe). Carrying stool will not crash into fingers. Yes, and sit on it will be more pleasant.
  4. Position the bearing (vertical) elements perpendicular to the floor. We take two lower horizontal crossbars with the help of a hammer or a mile, holding the supports of the collected tokevere, who do not give them to touch.
  5. Install all the upper crossbars, observing the same indentation from the root of the carrier structure.

If the design still turned out not dense, and the pitch, do the following.

  1. Clean the large sandpaper all connecting surfaces.
  2. Call in the details of the hole for the solemn. The diameter of the drill is selected slightly less than the diameter of the self-press. For example, for self-stalk, the “five” requires a drill with a diameter of 3.5-4 mm.
  3. Divide and apply to the details in the places of their contact epoxy glue.
  4. Lock the design in all places, screwing the screw.
  5. Check for evenness, lack of skew your design using level, plumb, laser or other means of high accuracy.

Stool is ready, you can remove it for a day in a reliable place. Almost any glue for complete hardening and drying requires 24 hours.

Screw the screws without dilution You can not – layers of plywood will begin to separate apart from each other. Then before the abuser it will be needed to sample and crawled plates, retaining plywood layers. Only in this case they will stand back, on their place where and should be.

If a classic stool of an old sample is done, a solid piece of chipboard is suitable as a seating. But remember that such a stove is afraid of moisture – during the day it irreversibly swells, frustrating, becomes unsuitable for further use, and is easily subjected to rotting. Therefore, the chipboard is not simply covered, and thoroughly, abundantly and in several layers are impregnated with waterproof varnish – for example, parquet, which includes epoxy. He “seals” sawdust chipboard tightly, not letting them water.
