I have searched all the websites I’m aware off that offer woodworking plans.
Does anyone know where I might find plans for a stool similar to this?

Thanks Skarp
Sometimes I see something that I decide I want to build. Need has no bearing. If I can see the actual object usually I can figure out pretty much how to and how big to make it.

the woodworker’s Journal Vol 16 number 5
September / October 1992 has plans for that. I was just looking at that magazine this morning. Following up on the article about the vacuum chuck on the cover.

I can scan it for you if you PM me.

I based mine on the Popular Mechanics version

There is also a very similar version stored as ‘Library Chair/Stool’ in Sketchup 3D Warehouse

You might like to note my comments about using counter flap hinges to get a flat seat – fitting them was a b**r for me!

I hope mine comes out as good as yours Don. I intend to make one without getting fancy, pine with countersunk screws. Seems like every time I build something unusual, someone looks at it and says “can you make me one of those”. After doing a simple one, getting a little fancier and using hard wood seems to go better. I’m paying $.30 a board foot for rough cut white pine, so I can afford to do it over till I get it right.
