Yurriy, great stool. Do you have parts dimensions list? I know you gave them in the video, but the list would be much simpler..

Very nice job! Sure would be nice to have some dimensions though! Watched the video, you are a fine craftsman!

Awesome job on those stools. I am a professional photographer and have been since Moses had short hair… I built 6 of those in three different sizes for myself 20+ years ago out of oak. I use them for families outdoors. I still use them a lot and they still look pretty good! Bottom line, those will last you a lifetime!!! Good job.

I too have built tables and stools on this design. They are very strong, stable, and durable. Several web sites can be found that feature plans for them. Once you have the plan you can scale it to what ever size you need all the way up to “card” table + size.

I built something similar to this in high school shop class out of pine 20 years ago. I still have the stool and my son uses it in his room every day. We had jigs setup at the tools necessary and mass produced parts. It was a fun project. These are a fine example. Well Done!

These stools would be great for surprise guests who just pop over unannounced. When not in use, they can be stowed away for storage to avoid being unsightly in the living room or anywhere around the house.

These are beautifully made!

For anyone else looking to make some – this is a popular design that is pretty easy to make but the moving parts make for a very satisfying finished product. I recently made a couple for my parent’s patio, they work as side tables or extra seating.

Family handyman has a great write-up and video: https://www.familyhandyman.com/workshop/saturday-morning-workshop-how-to-build-a-folding-stool/

As does Jackman works: https://www.jackmanworks.com/collapsible-folding-adirondack-table/

And Steve Ramsey of Woodworking for Mere Mortals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_ECkRrphj8

There’s room to change the style and dimensions to suit.
