Our wooden stool taboret plan offers you a beautiful turned and decorative as well as functional piece of furniture in your home.

Taboret (also tabouret) is one word describing two different pieces of furniture. One resembles more a cabinet and other stool. Taborets have that classic, traditional design feel of an old Europe, and it can fit perfectly with almost any decor. Their small size and light weight makes them easily movable, so you can have them one period of time in the kitchen, then the living room, or even on the balcony as a stand for flower pots, vase or some other ornaments.

As you can see in the picture, here you are offered a plan to build a tabouret stool that consists of four legs and two boards. The legs and boards are interconnected with the parts named pins. These pins are in fact dowels with a rounded head, which have a decorative role.
It is a very simple construction that can be easily adjusted to your needs:

  • the dimensions of parts - legs and boards - can be changed, i.e., adjusted to your room space;
  • multiple boards can be inserted, or even a drawer beneath the upper board;
  • you can choose a different pin head design;
  • you can make the legs look different on a lathe; if this machine tool is not at your disposal, however, make the legs to be rectangular and decorate them using chip carving technique, cutting various chamfers on the edges and the like.
