The traditional three-legged stool or Milking Stool originates from 19th century England. It might not be intuitive to have a stool with 3 legs, but, in fact, the 3 legged design makes for more stability on uneven ground for someone leaning forward to milk a cow.

You will sand, use saws, hammers, drill presses and more to craft your own stool.

Learn to carve wood into shapes, use sandpaper to smooth your desired shapes on smaller pieces of wood.

Fee: $85
