I needed a shop stool for some time now and had been looking for plans to build one before I just winged it. And low and behold I came across the plan for this stool on the “American Woodworkers” website. It’s called the “Double Duty Shop Stool”. I finished it Sunday morning and all ready it is a favorite project of mine. Having limited space in my garage shop I now have a place to support projects as well as my butt!

A very practical project. If it were in my shop it would be one of the most used.

Your stool post was just in time for my “show us your shop stool/chair” challenge. (i posted it as a little get em going challenge in the coffee lounge forum” This is a good example of a multi-functional tool. Great idea for a stool.

Looks like a flexible and infinetly usefull project.
One thing that could give it another use is adding a roller attachment for the top. It can double as an outfeed or infeed roller. It could clip or screw on and with that substantial base it should be stable.
Good work!
