Design Ideas

Looking on the Internet, in particular he had liked a stool with a foot rest.


In the shop, using a pair of saw benches,we visualized what a stool/bench might look like...we decided to alter design of the saw bench...shorten it up...
I had made a Sketchup when I built the saw benches...

Using the same rough dimensions, I shortened the length...dropped the shelf, rounded the end, added a bottom rail...


Based on repeated real world tests...we decided to create the foot rest at a greater height than the bench.
