How to: Make a DIY Concrete Stool

There’s a new blog by Ben Uyeda called “Homemade Modern,” that’s making quite a stir in the DIY-o-sphere. Ben and company are setting out to create modern and contemporary style furniture by hand, andtheir commitment to exploring materials makes this a unique site, and they’re turning out designs that look like they came from high-end studios and factories but can be made in your basement or garage. Ben’s previous $5 concrete stool got passed around a bit (you likely saw it over the last few weeks), but I particularly like this update, which switches out the bucket mold for a square seat, and adds dowel rods for additional cross support. 

Check out Ben’s new concrete stool updates, then head to episode 8 for the original how-to. Good stuff, Ben. Keep up the great work.
