I love them for their simplicity and versatility.When building these I most often use a round tenon in an angled mortise to attach the legs to the top. These joints provide a clean strong connection, and they are easyto make with a drill press, Forstner drill bits and a simple jig. Step 1: Materials To start you'll want to gather supplies for the stool and the jig.For the stool:1) A wooden top - I'm using a 14 disk made from ash that's 7/8 thick. I've already joined, planed and shaped the circle. This can be any size as long as you can fit it onthe drill press jig you build.2) A set of round legs - I made four of these on a small wood lathe. These are about 14 long with 1 x1 tenon and a 1 1/2 diameter at the shoulder.For the jig:3) a 3/4 thick piece of MDF or shop ply that is a few inches larger than your seat diameter. Here I have a 17x17 square and two 1 x17 strips4) Wood glue5) 1 1/4 brad nails  http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Angled-Mortices-on-the-Drill-Press-Attaching-/  Step 2: Tools Next you'll want to have a few tools on hand1) Pencil2) Tape measure3) 12 combo square4) 18 ruler5) 45 degree drafting triangle6) Brad nail gun7) Forster drill bits: 1 1/2 and 1 8) Safety glasses9) Clamps  http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Angled-Mortices-on-the-Drill-Press-Attaching-/  Step 3: Mark the Seat - First you'll want to mark the wooden top so that it has center lines for reference. This is easiest to mark before you cut the circle. After the circle is cut you can transferthe lines to the side with a combo square. Be sure final marks are made on the bottom side of the seat.- Next, because of how I want the grain direction to run on the stool I adjust the center lines to 45 degrees from the grain direction using a drafting triangle.- Then mark the center point for each leg mortise using a combo square set at 3 and drawing a line at that point. You can adjust these points closer to the outside edgefor a wider stance.
