I needing something to fill the space next to my hall cabinet plus I wanted a place to sit and take off my boots, so I made a pair of folding stools. I got the idea from Steve Marin, he did a video on these style of stools and I really liked the design. The base is made of oak and the seat is made from cherry, just some scraps I had laying around. Finished with 4 coats of spray lacquer.

Nice. But I don’t think I would put my boots on it. Looks to nice for that.

Hi David.

I’ve got Steve’s folding stools on my favorites list too. I want to build a couple when I get enough “scrap”.
I notice you added a cove at the top. Nice touch.

David, those are real nice. I haven’t seen any like that and you did a great job on them.

They look like, with a few modifications, TV trays that my parents have in their family room. I don’t think I would sit on them, too good looking.
