Default adjustable foot stool.
Report Post Report This Post!

This is a design of an adjustable foot stool that I have been making for about ten years, and have sold very successfully, as you can see, there are many different positions even up to making it into an occasional seat. Unfortunately I have lost the c.d. with the W.I.P. pics and the build write -up.

Very nice concept. What kind of weight can that take? Is that a type of Oak? I see some flake in the side pieces. But the color and grain in the pic does not look quite like Oak.

Here is a direct pic of Derek's project.

Hello guys, This particular one is made of softwood, I have made them of Oak, Iroko and mahogany, I myself, and the controller, use ones made of Mahogany, Router cut M and T joints, Piano hinge, etc.
Mine has been used as a seat with some rather large people on it, very strong indeed.
I am sorry about the b....s up with the pics. you obviously can open them.

Derek, that is really neat.
Don't suppose you have any plans for sale?

Gene,
There are no plans and as I stated i have lost the wip pics and write up, I can, at the weekend do a bit of a description and a short assembly write and put it on here, if that is what you or anybody else wants, then I will do so.

Nice, Derek, and certainly unique...just curious, how much are you selling them for? (If you don't mind me asking)

Steve,
Like most of the stuff i make and sell, I do not count the labour cost, and all the timber I use is free as it is all reclaimed, now having got that over, I sold them for a very small pittance of about £50:00, I only ever sold them at craft fairs and places like Game shows or Steam engine rallies.
