What’s The Color Of Your Stool ?

Mine came in various shades of brown, and very hard !   They smelled good too. Before anyone throws up, am talking about the home-made wooden stools that we had in our home decades ago.  LOLX.

Apart from the bedroom set that my parents bought for their wedding, almost everything else was D-I-Y by my dad (of course aided later on by me 🙂 ).   We made a total of 6 stools as per illustration, a dining table, a workbench, a couple of racks and cabinets too.

We were blessed with the advantage of being in the vicinity of a sawmill — which had ample supplies of discarded timber odds & ends — and  a basic set of woodworking tools, a tradition of ‘berdikari’ and spirit of ‘jimat cermat’.  Those were the good old days, really.
