Another older project. This is a shop stool on wheels from a Woodsmith Shop episode and plans. I altered it a bit and just made it out of all scrap plywood along with some poplar edge trim. Some of the plywood is also trimmed with iron-on banding. It’s a great addition. Gives me somewhere to sit in front of the fan or move around the low spots of a project with space underneath for tools and hardware if needed.. All scrap birch and oak plywood. The only thing I purchased were the wheels.

You turned those scrap’s into a great looking scooter! I know it will be a pleasure to have when you need to do work close to the floor! Good place to do some thinking also! Nice job!

Thanks. My grandkids have been enjoying it too. I had to untie and remove the rope to take pictures. One sits on it and the other pulls it around the garage.

I’m definitely going to borrow that idea so that I can roll around my shop! Great job!

Lovely little fellow and even I would love to give it a spin down the shop floor. ;-)

Here's a link to the plans. I didn’t build to the exact size because the plans called for two layers of 1/2” ply for the sides. I just made everything out of single layer 3/4” ply. I originally wanted to make it a bit taller but the scraps I made it from weren’t quite bit enough.
