Scouts make a tripod camp stool from wooden dowel and leather - based on the beautiful design by Matt at Wood and Faulkner
Center-finder (optional, but helps)
Small socket wrench to fit acorn nuts
Three 1 1/8â€ Birch hardwood dowels - enough for three 24â€ pieces
One brass 2.75â€ bolt
One 1.5â€ eyehole bolt
Two brass acorn nuts
Three brass washers
Three brass finishing washers
Three brass 1â€ wood screws (big enough not to slip through the finishing washer)
Finish - I used Osmo PolyX-Oil
Leather or other heavy material for seat (this is 14" each side in Matt's design)

Scouts will need to drill a hole through each of three wooden legs. They must also drill a pilot hole in the top of each leg. Legs must be finished off with a laquer/wax/other finish. The three legs are then attached together.
The leather seat must be cut to size and a hole punched in each corner. The seat is then attached to the top of each leg. A carrying strap can be added if desired. A strap should be attached to hold the legs together when not in use.
