The Ultimate Shop Stool

Check out this easy to build shop stool!  Not only is it a great place to sit in the woodworking shop but it also can serve as an extra hand for great outfeed support.

These plans used to be free but now they charge for them!  How silly?!?! I'm so sorry everyone but maybe I can get another video out describing the dimensions and things in more detail? click here to go to American Woodworker's page on it.

How to build a Folding Stick Chair

This chair is a fairly simple build, although it does take a fair amount of time to cut the parts and drill the holes in all of them, but after that's done it's pretty simple.  The design sparked my interest and I figured I would make one or two of them, I'm glad I did, they turned out great!

IMG of Chair

There are plans for this chair in a few places online, some will cost you some will be free but are difficult to understand or navigate through due to ads and whatnot.  I hope to provide you with a straight forward and easy to follow how to guide!

Have a look at my short video to get the what all the project entails and understand how everything works.  You will find the details and dimensions of the pieces below the video.

All of the pieces are cut out of 2x4 stock, they are all 1 1/4" x 1 1/2".
All holes are drilled on the wider 1 1/2" side of each piece and also centered across the piece.
