Here’s my recent addition to the shop furniture: shop stool.

Since I’ve got some serious space constraints in the shop the stool was designed to serve as a sitting stool, as a step stool so I can reach for upper shelves, and as a short saw bench for cross-cutting and for ripping (those holes in the top are for 10mm / 3/8” dowels to support boards when sawing).

Made out of pine, finish is two coats of Danish oil.

Joinery: drawbored M&T for legs, wedged through-tenons for stretchers, dovetails for the tops.

Thank you for looking!

Very nice Yuri. I hope to make a similar device for a saw bench soon. Been meaning to for a while, but haven’t had the time yet lol

Thank you, Mauricio! It does serve well so far. I had an idea to bore a hole for the holdfast in the middle of each top boards (they are 2” thick), but decided to wait a little to see if I can do just with clamps.

Thank you, Mos! I built it quick enough after it popped into my head, but just because I had some leftover wood from previous project (garden bench), and because I had no place where to store it, so I had to get rid of it ASAP :)

I’m intrigued for my own use. How much does it weigh?

Thank you, Jim! This time I sharpened the pegs for drawbored M&T much better than before, and it went fine.

Charles, it’s about 5.5 kilos / 12 pounds. All the parts are quite thick because it’s pine, I’d go for much thinner parts if it would be some hardwood.

Great idea for a multi task stool.

Great stool/step/sawbench, Yuri! And a bunch of well done joinery practice to boot! Thanks for sharing!

Very nice work Yuri. That looks like a valuable place for work to get done, and work not to get done when you just need to sit. Excellent job

Nice looking joinery!

I designed a combination “joint stool” and “workmate” shop appliance a while back as a joke, yours is probably more practical :)
