Make your own milking stool

Learn to make a milking stool with the Somerset Bodgers

  • Booking essential

We make a three leg milking stool with the school groups which come to us for six one hour sessions.

Over time nearly a hundred of these have been produced. So if kids can do it so can you!

We start with ash logs which we split, chop and shave into cylinders and then turn on the lathe. A pre-cut hardwood top is provided which you clean up and make ready to insert the three legs.

All you then need is to find a bucket and a cow.
