Where it all began..Little did I know that when I made this stool back in 74’ that it would help my wife into bed after surgery, my grandkids would use it to reach the sink when brushing their teeth, and that it would find alot of use in my folks kitchen as well as my own.

Looks like it’s stood up pretty well. Sure beats the plastic ones . . .

The fact that this is over 30 years later and it is still serving well is clear proof that this project was a complete success! A very classic style – you can tell everyone it is a treasured family heirloom!

That is so cool that you have kept that all these years. And you must have done a good job or it would have fallen apart years ago.

Great stoy and Nice work! Your stool stood the test of time!
You got me thinking….I have a stool that’s 41 year old and I never thought of posting here on LJ. I guess it’s about time! My 3 kids will be suprised that I still have it!
Thanks for posting you stool!

WOW! Did that bring back memories! I made the same stool back in the 7th grade woodshop class, only it was the late 60s for me. And my mother still uses it!
