Footstool Commission

I am busy making 1/12 scale footstools (my first commission). The bottom photo is of a full sized footstool that I am recreating in miniature. In the top photo you can see my progress so far. First I cut a piece of wood into thin strips and then routed a groove for the base in it. The strips were then mitred , glued together into a square and the base added, I also decided to make some rectangular ones. The next step is to router the outside curves and top lip, after that is done I will turn some hamburger shaped little legs. The square footstool is 1 9/16" in size and the rectangular one is 1 9/16" by 2 3/8". Keep watching to see further progress.
