Testing the fit of the joints

Before gluing up the stool, assemble it to check the fit of all the joints. Stand one of the side pieces on end, then align a tread with it. Press the joint together by hand as far as it will go (right), then use a mallet to tap the tread the rest of the way into place. The boards should fit snugly, requiring only a light tapping,- avoid using excessive force. If any joint is clearly too tight, mark the spot where it binds, then disassemble the boards and use a chisel to pare away a little more wood. Testfit the joint again and adjust it further, as necessary.
