SEE A VIDEO OF THE BUILD HERE: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r8iCJZQvFiE
This was another project I thought I would be able to whip out pretty quickly but of course i had to over think it and ended up taking a lot of time to design and build.
I was kinda surprise at the lack of folding chairs built by woodworks on the web. I only came across a few so i hope this helps anyone that is looking for inspiration to build there own.
Its made from walnut and maple. I currently don’t have plans for it but if i get enough requests for it i will do something up.

Neat stool. My granddaughter would use it for a chair.

Where’s the link to the vid? You forget to add it in?

Great looking piece! I’d be interested in seeing plans—love your confession about over thinking things.

That is a very nice step stool that you built and I loved the video on the process. I like your choice of glue bottle. That is what I use too!!

You planned well and did a super assembly job!!

Cheers, Jim

Very nicely done! I hope if you don’t mind that I will copy the design for my stool!

The flat folding design is really nice. Great job!

I would definitely be interested in plans. My wife just was asking if I could make a two-step stool.
