Rounding error

Technically, we’re trying to avoid error in this bit especially.  This is the working part of our stool, the centre that the whole thing quite literally revolves around.  We have a lot of very specific marking.  Locate the hole for the axle before you cut anything, as you will lose some reference surfaces in the process.


Once I had everything laid out, I cut and trued the rounded ends as consistently as possible.  As always, try to do both at the same time.  Not only is it faster, but it will create a more accurate surface across the piece.


Finally, bore the holes for the axle.  Next time we’ll put in the stretchers, completing our rear sub-assembly.
