I ran across this design a few years back and it has always been on my mind and on my “to build” list. I thought it was so cool. I really needed a stool for my shop and the outfeed support part of it is pretty neat. even if I never use it it’s cool to “show it off” when people visit my shop! I’m sure Ill use it though.

So I made a how-to video of the build:

As always, I’m a fan. I’ve actually been looking for a shop stool, so now I have my weekend project. Thanks.

Glad y’all liked it. It’s a pretty comfortable stool, well as far are stools go it is lol. Since it has the footrest all the way around the bottom it’s nice.

Good luck with it Rusty!

Hi Sailor,
I got your email but could not find the actual plans?
Are they drawn out with the dimensions
??
Maybe I’m missing something

Old age..lol
Anyhow.. if you have the actual drawings… would you mind just emailing them to me.
I’d appreciate it.
Thanks

A very instructional video! I think you have a real talent for teaching this kind of work. You may be the next Norm!

? WOW! What a compliment, very much appreciated! I need to save that one there! Thanks gfadvm!

Im a pretty literal person in life and in normal conversation. I try to seem to explain everyday things very precisely and as clearly as possible. Sometime close family and friends get annoyed by it to lol.

Thank you again!

Yup, I remember seeing it too and thought I would like to make one. But I’m still thinking about it. Nicely done!

This was a great weekend project. Thanks for the instructions.

Ps, I need more practice with circles and a jig saw.

Great job Rusty! Yea, the circles with a jigsaw in 3/4” ply are tough to get perfect.
