FrontCoverThere are many ways to learn woodworking and I think making a project is way better than getting bogged down in theory, tool collecting or setting up the ultimate shop. A good project offers a challenge and more often than not you can work with the tools and shop you have. One of my all-time favorite projects is the three-legged stool seen here. You don’t need a ton of tools or experience to make one, you just need the willingness to get started.

It made its first appearance here on our blog, and was the cover project of the final issue of Woodworking Magazine. Building one of these is a great way to learn through mortise and tenon joinery, and how to think outside the box – none of the joints are at ninety degrees and all the measurements come from an imaginary plumb line and a full-scale drawing.
