Folding Stool

This is a stool that is inspired by a Jack Smith design. It uses good design principals. The more weight that is applied to the top, the tighter the legs are held together. Just lifting from the handle allows for the folding action as seen in last photo. It is made from recycled Ipil and Molave.

Hi George, thats is a very cool and interesting stool. I can see the concept of hw the legs tight when you sit and understand how they would fold, but are they three legs attached together somehow and are they attached to the seat in a way that they can fold up?

Hi Woodbridge. The three legs are connected together by two hinges. The legs are attached to the seat by one hinge on center leg.

Cool build! It’s easy and convenient to bring anywhere and store it when not in use. Great job!
