This is a lovely, character chair which converts to steps. Traditionally used in libraries it would make a useful and interesting addition to a home.
Made of pine wood , it is a sturdy chair.
As can be seen it is a dining/hall type chair and by means of a simple catch it can be opened and converted into steps (4 in all) which would be placed against a wall and used to reach books from shelves (or other items!).

Many Thanks for looking

That is a very cool looking chair. I have seen step stool/chairs before but non that are so decorative. Another idea for my project list. Thanks

That is fantastic! Did you use plans? Are they available, or at least what is the rise and run of each step so I can work it out, please?

This is really an attractive design! I’ve always wanted to make a combination piece of furniture and will add your design to my idea list!

Very cool. Did you make this from a plan? I would definitely like to give this a try.
