    I’ve got a few in mine, Two office desk chairs mostly for breaks. Two bar stools for up at a bench, And one of those short adjustable height Dr chairs. It swivels and is on wheels with hydraulic height adjust with no back rest, I probably use that one the most.

    I keep a couple folding chairs in my shop just in case I need to sit down for a bit and rest my legs .

    Maybe I’m overthinking it, but I was planning on building one. By the time I buy decent lumber and castors, I’m sure it will be more expensive anyway…still, it would be a fun project to take on.

    I have a short stool and a bar stool that I rarely use, and in the garage I have a short adjustable one on casters that gets used more often. Never gave any thought to building one so would like to see what you come up with for your build. Have you thought about building some storage into it ?

    I have a Craftsman Mechanic’s Stool. I love it. It’s pneumatic, adjustable from 14 inches to 19 inches. I like that it has storage beneath the seat. It’s great for when you need something short.

    That’s a nice stool for working on low items. Adjustable is nice too.

    Storage? No, but it’s an interesting thought. I’m not sure what I’d want to store in a stool, maybe pencils and a tape…things you Always need at hand.

    As far as a specific design…I haven’t found anything I’m ready to build just yet.

    I just got the Bessey stool, free with the purchase of some clamps. Height adjustable, but doesn’t have wheels. Most of the projects I do, I need to stand and move around anyways.

    I had a stool in the garage but I never used it. I just pushed it out of the way all the time…or put stuff on, lol.
    Mark E., that’s a great Bonus! Looks sharp and well made too.

    I want to make something loosely based on this one the drunken wood worker does.

    I have some extra ply that I want to try.

    I would make a tool tray under it, or tool mesh basket or something. Instead of just open-ness underneath.

    I have one of the low rolling mechanics stools, and an old, old metal chair of my grandfather’s but I would like an adjustable height stool like a drafting stool, so I could sit at my tall bench occasionally.

    Same identical stool I have. Under $20 at HF when I got mine.

    @Sprokitz: I got mine at Ace Hardware for just under $20, too. Mine has a black seat and black wheels, which I prefer. It’s perfect for me for what I do. I just built some more sliding shelves for my kitchen cabinets and this stool served me well. I was able to set my tools and screws on the tray beneath the seat where they were all in easy reach.

    That’s a nice incentive.

    Same here. I sit and do my pondering outside the shop generally. My shop stool hasn’t been in the shop in a long time.

    Old wooden IKEA chair works for me, a bit uncomfortable after a while though.

    I think an adjustable height stool is the way to go. I don’t see a need for wheels

    I can’t be bothered with wheels on the one i am going to make. I think i will attempted the plywood one, once i get my new colt router in the shop.

    I have a low bar stool that I like to use in the shop. I put an office chair in there to get it out of the house and I am not fond of it. It has to go. For sitting around I have found that my saw benches work great, but that would make sense because they are designed to be knee height, which is the same height as comfortable seating.

    I don’t have a stool but I do want something to sit on. Although i feel that if I had a chair I’d spend more time sitting than working on my projects. ibuildit.ca which is John Heisz has a good video for an OSB stool he made. Look him up on Youtube as well. Great videos

    I have this stool also. It worked great when I was building jewelry display cases for a big chain of stores. Some of the cases were 40′ long and had a lot of hardware to install. I would put the hardware on the base and scoot along installing . It also worked great when laminating the faces of the cabinets. Now I use it when I wax the sides of the truck. I did flip it over a few times though! It wasn’t a pretty sight! lol
