Where does inspiration come from? Anywhere! Even a slab of oak (a tree cookie) can act as that kick-in-the-pants some of us know as "inspiration". This particular kick-in-the-pants was to become the "Whatever Colour You Like Rustic Tree Cookie Stool".
A stool generally is comprised of a seat and something to hold the seat up off the floor. I already had the seat - thanks to about 50 years of toil by an oak tree. I simply needed to knock off the bark.
I used scrap honeysuckle to make legs to support the seat. I cut three legs.
Next, I checked each leg for fit.
Some needed trimming in order to fit.
Some were right-0n.
Who would'a thunk it" - they fit just fine!
Not too shabby...
...especially with some stain/varnish combination finish.
All this to hold up a pot that contains nothing? Yes, but it sure looks cute :)

(note: "Whatever Colour You Like" is a song from Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon Album. This stool is one of those projects that could be whatever colour - or size, or form - you like)
