I have made a few of these pine helper stools for friends. Lets the kids get up to countertop height so they can help with preparing meals. No fine joinery here, simply glued and screwed in order to get these made cheap and quick. I found a cheap source for pine near me so my wood costs are around $12-15 for each stool. I am going to be putting them up for sale for $100 through FB marketplace.

Since I have made a few of these, this was my first time batching out all the parts at once. That makes life so much easier when compared to making one off’s.

People seem to want them to be able to be folded up so I need to come up with a simple way to do that. Any advice would be appreciated.

Nice——can I borrow the idea? Grand kids drag a chair into kitchen when helping MaMa. Make the bottom step able to hinge in —- or——slide in some kind of way—- it will make it a little smaller when put away.
