No. 35 Three Stools -Stool Week

Tomorrow will be the beginning of a new week and with it a new theme: Beds. But before we go lets finish Stool Week with...wait for it...three designs. I know, not exactly the pomp and circumstance you had hoped for but...

 Top Left: This stool has some interesting things going for it, just not all together.
Top Right: I really like this stool. There are some hurdles to overcome to make it durable, but once those are solved, what a fine stool you would have.
Bottom: This simple fellow was reminding me of something, but I couldn't figure out what it was. Then I realized it looks just like the base for my old (sitting in storage if someone wants to buy it) Sears/Craftsman table saw. I do like its simplicity and mod feel though.

Grab a pencil, some paper and start drawing your own stools. After you're done share them with the rest of us at

With 5 legs you'll never get the rock out of the top left one :)

Seriously, you don't see many (I don't recall any) stools with 5 legs. Is there a reason for that, aside from utility?

I like the cantilevered look of the top right one. I agree that it's a materials/construction issue to make it durable, but it would be a pretty nice thing to have. It could also be a table - like a tray table sort of thing.

I guess I should have given a little more detail on the upper left. If you look very closely, the stool has 4 legs and 4 mid vertical pieces connecting the centers of the arcs for reasons unknown even to me.
