Here is a shop stool I built this weekend. The weather down here was a little cooler so I could get in the shop and do something. I needed something to reach higher without using the ladder and also to sit on (my rear was hurting from sitting on the back of a pail). I need to finish it with something (don’t know what yet). I’ve got the plans from Popular Woodworking – June 2005. It took 1/2 sheet of 3/4” AC plywood. The plan calls for exposed screws but I used pocket screws (just because I like them so much and they have the Robertson head).
