How To Make A Three Position Box

The Bell Systems three position stool was a mainstay of the central telecom office. It was typically constructed from red oak and 2 inch screws. It was a was a real workhorse, just what I need…

My box is scaled down a bit from the original stool but fits well in the shop.

It measures:
22.5″ high,
16″ wide
11.5″ deep

I made it from 3/4 maple and a scrap piece of plywood for the bottom.  It is perfect for reaching to the top of the lumber rack, changing light bulbs, as well as sitting at the bench. It’s also a great step up to tools and tables for young woodworkers.

It is already become invaluable. Thanks for looking!
