Looking for a pattern (or patterns) for a three-legged stool. Would like to find a pattern that includes the layout and sources for quality wood legs and hardware.

There are some folks making these and posting in the furniture section, they might give you some ideas. I made one several years ago, just screwed the leather seat to the 3 legs I made out of dowels, I was copying one my friend had and never got to the connecting the legs together part. His was made of leather with the legs poked through then screwed into the legs, I know that probably made no sense. I wrapped mine all up in baling twine for a temporary fix, and now 8 years later I'm still using it that way...

Here's a link to a site that has instructions for sale.

I added this yesterday and it seems to have disappeared.

Here are two links that are two different types of construction that you can probably modify for what you want.

For the tri-bolt, people have taken 3 bolts of the appropriate size, aligned them & welded them together. As far as I know, the tri-bolts are not commercially available, because the market is so, so limited for them.

If someone could get me a tri-bolt set up, I know a couple of machinists who could probably make them for me.

Thanks for the other suggestions on where to get the patterns.

You do not need a tri-bolt to hold the legs together.

Take a look at this walking stick that converts to a three legged stool.

They use a metal ring like Big Daddy does on his plans. The metal ring keeps the legs from separating and the angle of the legs across the ring distributes the persons weight down the leg.

Hope this makes sense. If not let me know and I will explain it better.

Also do some searching on here and you will find a person named UKRay that makes the tri-bolts for sale. He is out of England so take that into consideration when thinking about having the bolts shipped to you.
His WEb site is www.barefootleather.co.uk

Wood & Faulk has a great tutorial for making a 3 legged camp stool with a very clever way connecting the 3 legs.

Rogue, thanks for sharing this link. That thing is awesome!
A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"

Thanks so much for that link. That's exactly what I was looking for with respect to making the legs.

I have some of these that my Mom made back in the 50's or early 60's. The swivel is made from a couple of triangular leather pieces that have been sewn together, and have3 holes in them for each of the legs to pass through. They are kept in place by tiny brass brads, one into each leg through the leather.. The seat has a pocket in each corner that the tapered leg fits into. A very simple design.
You laugh at me because I am different. I laugh at you because you are all the same.
