Careful placement of the pattern allows the seat to be defect-free. The band saw makes short work of roughing out the seat blank. F U R N I T U R E F U N DA M E N TA L S • 43 In order to drill the holes in the seat blank, there has to be a way of referencing the blank to get the legs splaying at relatively the same angle. Esherick may have eschewed symmetry, but having the legs on the stool splay at four different angles would have been a bit much, even for him. I made a simple jig for the drill press from two pieces of plywood and a scrap of 2×4.
Because my seat is rectangular, the stretcher angles on the sides are different than on the front and back. Pay attention when drilling the holes because the legs are handed. With the scrap boards clamped in place, take the rough measurements for the stretcher lengths. On my stool the side stretchers are of equal length while the front stretcher is longer than the back. Once you have the lengths calculated, turn the stretchers. I made mine overlong and made sure the ends were 5 ⁄8" in diameter over the last 21 ⁄2".

Because I would be using 3 ⁄4"-thick materials, I extended the seat supports to run all the way between the ends to brace the seat and strengthen the overall structure. The second design change was to the ends – on the original the arched cutout that creates the legs of the bench wasn’t centered on the end.
