Bob If you click on next and previous on Mother Earth News site there are three pictures. I found 3 to be almost impossible to read.

Thanks Karson, Bruce.
I spent a good hour on the net and missed this one entirely.

I did one of those about 20 years ago. I have a few pictures but no plans. Mine was adapted from a design one of my college professors came up with out of Baltic Birch Ply. I adapted it to be made in solid wood. Mine was Red Oak. I have more pictures around somewhere. I will try to dig them up and post them. Here’s the one I could find of the chair in Ladder mode.

(I hope I know how to work this)
I will try to find the rest of the pictures (which means I will ask my wife where they are) and post them.

I used Sewing Table hinges for the folding part.

Karson, if you click on the blurry pictures they will enlarge and become clear.

Here is the photo of the two prototypes I made for Helge Olsen, my Danish Design professor.

Photobucket

One is open to be the ladder, one is in chair form as you can probably tell.

Maybe later this week I can dig out the oak one and take some more pictures. It’s still here somewhere. I only made the one and never sold it.
