Shortening a bar stool into a foot stool

On Christmas Day, my sister Lisa asked me to convert her $4 garage sale bar stool down into a foot stool.

I shortened it to 13 inches in height.

I could find no way to make it fit into my bandsaw, or other electric saws for that matter...........so I carefully tried to cut the right angle using my hand back-saw.

The results came out surprisingly well.   I only had to belt sand 1 leg down a smidgeon so it would set perfectly flat on my table saw top.

She was pleased at the results  

 

 

 

 

All it needs is a little stain touchup on the saw cuts, and it will be perfect!

 Here is a before and after pictures........
