I saw one of these in Steve Ramseys (WWMM) vedios on how to make this simple folding step stool. I made mine out of some left over scraps of plywood used in a kitchen cabinet build I worked on a few years ago. When I showed it to my wife and asked her what she thought of it her response was “Thank you, I really can use that”.

This is my first posting so I hope you enjoy the what I’ve done. Thanks for looking.

Looks good. A sturdy little stool and it looks good folded up too. The strong plywood is also a plus for something like this. Welcome to LJ.

Nice chair! I’ve made several of these and even one from a single 2×4. Caution should be exercised if using this a foot stool. They have a tendency to tilt. The width of the base is a tad narrow vs. its height. Anyway, nice build and use of scrap materials.

Very Awesome Rogue! My 10 year old son built one of these a couple weeks back as well. He put his build up on Youtube.
There is the link if you wish to watch.

Also, plywood is the perfect wood for this. I think if we had our time back, My son says he would have placed plastic spacers between the moving parts.

Thanks for the compliment and the link to you sons project. I think it’s great he is interested in woodwoorking. I can’t think of a better way to share an interest with you kids.

Very cool & functional. I always sit on an old woven milking stool when I’m sanding and half of the straps are coming undone. I use that same stool when I’m finished to stand on and pull down the giant metal door. I could get a lot of action outta one of these guys.
