How would I create stool legs that branch out from an initial surface


I’m trying to create a stool for a furniture class and what I want to achieve is to have the legs branch out from the top of the stool like a tree but I can’t figure out how to start this or achieve this. I also want the top and the legs to be one surface so that its just one piece. If anyone knows a way of achieving this any help would be greatly appreciated! Attached are my two files and a drawing of what I kinda want it to look like. (15.3 KB) new doc 2019-10-20 13.05.13_20191020130641.pdf (371.2 KB) Stool01_Urgo.3dm (3.1 MB)
