I have made a lot of furniture over the years, much of which I don’t own any more. Most of my current projects are “camp” or “rustic” designs. I am very fond of the Arts and Crafts movement and have built quite a few pieces from designs of that period.
This is my favorite camp stool design. It folds down small, can be made to any scale, and is sturdy enough to stand on. Just to clarify; these are my own designs and are not copied from anyone else. I looked at a couple, sat down with a pencil and paper, and created these. They are not copyrighted in any way and anyone should feel free to build them.
Here is how it is made…
Seventeen pieces, twelve holes, and a few screws.
Dimensions: 18″ legs, each half of seat is 5 1/2″ wide. This causes it to sit at 15 3/4″ which is the low end of “standard” seating which is normally around 17 3/4″.
