Since some people have wanted to make this I am posting a tutorial for making this.
To make this you will need:
1) 1 Log (mine was 8" wide and about 16" tall)
2) 2' x 2' 5/8ths Pine Plywood (x2)
3) 3" Lag bolts and washers (x8)
4) 1 yard thick fabric (I used red denim)
5) About 1/2 a yard of a lighter color (I used a tan color for the underside)
6) 1/8" piece of balsa wood.
7) Floral Tape
8 ) Small piece of Plexiglas
9) LED Flickering candle
10) Extra wiring
11) Brass nails
13) Decorative pieces (Stones, Moss, Butterflies, etc.)
Tools you will need:
2) Hole Saw bits
3) Forstner Bits
5) Utility Knife
6) Staple Gun
7) Soldering gun
8 ) Chop Saw or Chain Saw
11) Gorilla Glue (expanding white glue kind)
12) Epoxy (or E-6000)
So here we go.
1) Start with a log, Cut the log down to the correct size and make it flat on both ends.
2) Use a jigsaw to cut out the seat and base. I made my seat diameter 24" and the base diameter 15"
3) I sealed the top and bottom of the log with polyurethane to prevent any bugs or cracking from happening.
4) I used my hole saw to make two deep cuts hole cuts into the log, 1 for the door, 1 for the window.
5) Using a chisel I chiseled out the wood inside the cuts.
6) I used the forstner bits to make a recessed area for the Lag bolts heads then used a regular drill bit to make a pilot hole for the bolts and attached the base and seat.
7) Using the Plexiglas and stained balsa wood I made a window for the top hole.
8 ) Using a scrap piece of Luann I used the hole saw to cut out a door for the lower hole. And then I used brass nails to outline the door and the utility knife to cut out groves to make the different "Boards" of the door. I also used the cut off wheel of my Dremel to cut off the nail tips.
9) I took a flickering LED Candle, disassembled the board, and re-attached longer wires.
10) I then drilled through the log and then ran the wires through it. I then put three posts in the whole and attached the window (with some issue paper behind it) with epoxy.
11) I attached the door with a hinge.
12) Using the staple gun I upholstered the seat with the red denim, and stuffed it with the Poly-fill. In retrospect I should have used quilting bating to wrap around the seat to soften the edge, but hindsight is 20/20.
13) To hide the wire I used floral tape and Ivy.
14) Using the tan fabric and the staple gun I attached the ruffle underneath the seat, Sorry no picture.
14) Add Moss, and rocks, and butterflies with epoxy to your liking
15) I used the balsa wood to make an eave to go over the window, and then stained it and glued it in place
16) I painted a gnome inside the door to finish it off.
And that is how you make a toadstool stool. If you have any other questions go ahead and ask.
