I’m in the process of getting rid of some things that are taking up space in our garage attic.

Click here: This is what we replaced them with.

Man!! does stuff ever accumulate. I listed these on Craigslist. I they don’t sell, I’m donating them to Goodwill.

The legs on these stools are made from Maple flooring. I ripped off the tongue, & grooves.

The footrests are 1/2” conduit.

The seat sections are 2 – 1/2” plywood circles, with 18” masonite rapped around the two circles.

They are 24” tall, to be used at a 36” high counter.

Barb did the sewing on the naughahide upholstery.

Looks like they have served well Dick but time does move on.

Too Bad Debbie,

I don’t anticipate selling them on Craigslist, because I’ve never had much success, so they may end up at Goodwill. Time will tell?

I don’t have anyplace to keep them, & I don’t want to put them in the dumpster.

They’ll never end up in the dumpster.

I suppose it would cost an arm, & a leg to ship them to you?

Hi Matt,
When you look at the globe, it looks downhill all the way.

My foot on the pedal would be easier.

That should lower the shipping costs.<(:O}

I’ll have to change my last comment.

All four are now going to a new home.

Yup!

I have to say that they’re still in the family.

After thinking it over, my Son is going to use one as his Guitar stool

My Grandson in his room for the same thing.

My daughter-in-law for her sewing room, & one for a spare.

Yes I agree they would also be great for those of us with bad backs for working at the lathe (engineering lathe) as I can sometimes sit at mine ad work for ten minutes before having to get up and reset things also great just for workshop stools.I have a couple that are scruffier than those. well done Alistair
