Last summer I educated carpenter-apprentices in one week, 8 hours a day, how to work on a workbench with handtools. We built a shaker design step-stool and I have some boards in birch left, which I will use for the Shop Stool Build-of. Because of all the teaching, I was not able to make a full shaker step stool for myself. I am not sure, if I am cheating, because I have already tails on two boards but I am not going for a price: The 25th will give me the opportunity to work one day focused on MY stool and it will be fun. That´s my motivation to take part in the game!
