Build Your Own Bar Stools
Build Your Own Bar Stools – Hi fellow DIY’ers! A little while ago I made plans for an outdoor patio with a concrete top. I promised a follow up video and tutorial on how to build a super easy stool. So… here it is! I modified the Georgia plans from MoreLikehome.net to fit my bar. The biggest changes I made were the overall height and how the seat boards are attached. Click here to check out detailed Georgia plans and photos! Our tutorials will show you how to make a DIY stool with minimal tools and materials. Please download her plans and feel free to use my photos as a reference if you would like to build a bar stool of the correct height and shape for the ice skating lessons in section 15.

How To Upholster A Bar Stool
Drill pocket holes in all boards except the legs and seat boards. Use a Kreg Jig and set it 1 1/2 inches in place for both the jig and the stop.
Use 2 1/2 inch Kreg Screws to attach the front and back parts of the seat. I would recommend using wood glue as well.
Next attach the four boards. This will connect the front stairs to the back stairs. Use a clamp to put the boards back together if necessary. I have a set of JackClamps that I use for most projects.
Use 2 1/2 inch kreg screws to attach the two 15 inch seats. Once finished, attach the seat boards to the bottom support using 2 1/2 inch plywood. Before attaching the seat boards you can lay the top side flat and glue it in place. Let the glue dry and then flip it over to attach the boards with 2 1/2 inch screws. This makes it easier to get the boards out. In addition, you will not have metal holes visible on the top.
Diy Industrial Bar Stool — Yogabycandace
Protect and keep your new stool shiny by brushing on two coats of Minwax’s Helmsman Spar Urethane. If you would prefer a different color or more protection I would recommend you to use floor or floor stain.

Finally, if you want to learn how to make a perfect bar and concrete surface please check out the downloadable plans! I created the plans because I had a hard time finding ideas and plans to make a custom bar to put on my deck. So, I did something and created the most in-depth video and online tutorial on how to make a cedar patio with concrete tops and LED lights.

While I was in Greece, my husband Greg went to work on the long list of things we needed to complete the YBC Home/Office trip. We shopped around for a stool when we first moved in, but we couldn’t find anything at a price that we were happy with. Greg felt he could do what we wanted, so I told him to do it. The final result came out very impressive, and since I have presented DIY projects on here, I thought I would invite Greg to post a guest explaining how he did it. We hope you enjoy it.
Easy Steps For Planning Your Home Bar
When we moved into our new home, we were still trying to finish the finishing touches. We found the essentials such as a bed, a bed, and Candace’s desk and office chair, next on the list was a place to sit. I decided to make these stools because I thought they would go well with our industrial space with high ceilings and exposed pipes, etc. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to put these bad boys together. The only downside was the price. Part of the reason we did the DIY was to save money but they were about $110 each so we didn’t really save any money. Oh well, they still came out big.
Attach a 12 inch tube to the teapot. Add a nipple near the end of the column opposite the 12″ pipe. Add a 90° elbow near the nipple. Add a 3 inch pipe. Add another 90° elbow. Add a 12″ pipe (here you can replace the 12 “pipe anything shorter than 5” depending on how long you need your stool to be).Add a cap.
Add a nipple near the open end of each leg. Attach the two legs to the one near the nipple you just added.
Use a 4″ pipe to connect the two legs. If you are building a tall stool like the one I did in this post. I would recommend a 5-6 inch pipe for this step to create a wider base for better stability.
How To Reupholster Bar Stools To Be Kid Friendly
Apply glue to the floorboards and attach to the wooden bench. (Option to purchase wood screws to screw the seat with the floor corners)
This stool was very easy to make and was surprisingly inexpensive. Again, depending on how tall you need your stool to be, you can build a stool about 21″ high for about $55. The one I built here for the project was 31″ high and cost me about $110.
When deciding on the height of your stool, just note that 4″ base length tubes create a stool that is 21-22 inches tall. I used 12″ base tube legs to create a stool around 29-30 inches. These were designed for a client to match the dining room table and chairs I made for her. I can’t wait to see the complete set.
This design is an easy way to make chairs… the fasteners are usually tail joints with screws that can’t be turned! So this is a great project if this is your first time making a chair… or a stool… not sure what it’s called!

As with most projects step #1 involves sawing the wood into a square ready for glue.
If you don’t have a binder, planner and table saw dimensions for these chairs work with dimensional lumber… 2×2’s and 2×6’s.
Adhesive tape that secures the seat base and seat back. I love these PONY | Jorgensen Cabinet Master’s identical joints because they squeeze the same pressure on both sides of the work helping to prevent bending. In addition, they create a hard work that is easy to use on the ground for large glasses or you can stand at the end to clean the glue on both sides before it dries. And that means you can store it out of the way while the glue dries as well.

Once everything was cut to length, I then used my table saw jig to cut a 7 degree taper for the back legs. This is a reel jig that I have used and I do not recommend it highly. I didn’t feel safe even with tape on. So, I ended up ordering this jig for any future tapers I need to make. It has a handle and looks like everything will be safe while using it.
For the seat base… or the parts that the base mounts on I used my cookie cutters and created some gaps. I use table top clamps or z-clips to attach the bottom of the seat to the base of the seat. Placing this method allows for seasonal wood movement.
If you don’t have cookie cutters you can also create large holes in the bottom and then attach the seat bottom to the base of the seats using screws and washers. This method will also allow for wood movement.

Session time! When I had everything lined up, I used PONY | Jorgensen aluminum bar clamps together to hold the parts together and then pre-drilled the countersunk
