    I think I might try to construct a taller version,I simply stretched the tape around the circumfrence of the seat and divided by three.

    Third, you need to site the three legs tripod style. Since IKEA gives you holes for four legs, I used one of the pre-drilled holes and then divided the rest of the circle into thirds. I didn’t use complicated match. I simply stretched the tape around the circumfrence of the seat and divided by three.

    you order your glass from a local glass shop. I wanted a wider bedside table than the stool allowed, so I went out on all sides to 16½”. It’s a funky look, but I like it. I also ordered really thick glass (¾”) which is much more costly. You could easily cut the price down by using thinner glass.
