Make the box-jointed stool sides and top
1. Glue up stock, and cut the sides (A) to the dimensions shown in the Bill of Materials. (To make the short stool, cut the sides to the optional size shown.) Bevel the ends to 10° as you cut the pieces to length. (Saw the bevels parallel.)
2. Cut the top (B) to the length shown, but make it 10" wide to start. (You'll cut it to finished width after sawing the box joints.) Bevel both ends to 10°. (On this part, saw converging bevels. The long side will be the part's bottom.)
3. Lay out the box joints on parts A and B, shown on the Parts View drawing. Start from the center on each piece. Locate a finger at the center of each side (A) and a space at the center of each end on the top (B). (We applied masking tape to the face of each part in the joint area, and drew our layout marks on the tape.) Lay out the cutlines for the tapered sides now, to ensure that the joints will be centered.
