Collapsible footstool

external image Footstool-picture-inventor.gif?height=400&width=330This footstool is a very clever design which uses 1" full thickness stock (pine) for the legs and supports and two pieces of 6" wide pine for the seat portion. The entire stool is easy to carry as it folds in on itself and may be carried by the "pins" which allow the supports to pivot.

See the sample in class for the exact dimensions.

You will be evaluated on several factors:
  • Sturdiness - How stable and sturdy is your stool?
  • Operation - Does it fold up nicely?
  • Joinery - Are your joints tight and solid?
  • Function - Does it work?
  • Aesthetics and workmanship - Does it look well-made?
