A place to sit and contemplate mid-project “design changes”. Made from left over pine finished with Old English(?) stain and water based poly. Also serves as a small step stool. The front was curved with an old draw knife found at a flea market last fall. Mostly done for fun but it does make it more comfortable on the back of my legs.

Just what I need. I’ve been putting off building some new shop stools. Your design looks like an easy and great idea. I am going to build them like that. Thanks for sharing!

Nice stool…...beats the heck outta mine…....2 milk crates stacked together with a plywood top…..but they are good for two levels of work!

Good job on the stool

Thanks for the comments. I may eventually make another with a possilbe tray underneath or another step that folds out.

Sharad -

The dimensions are 24” H x 20” W x 9” D. The 9” is the width at the bottom and it tapers up to about 7 3/4” at the top.
