KneXtreme (author)knexboy5862012-05-23

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with what a "stoll" is.

where would i put another support and how?

I would put another support half way in-between the other cross brace and the top. As to the how, I would build the thing in step 4 and 5 that attaches the other cross brace.

i built it and it barely holds my weight so id deffently need another support but the ones ive come up with make the legs bow in/out any ideas?

Hmmmm. This is kind of hard explain since I took apart the stool. I would try experimenting with it. Maybe by trying the cross brace on different parts of the leg. Or experimenting with different rods or rod/connector combos. Sorry I couldn't be much help:(

This is amazing man! There are few things I see on here that I actually want to build, but this is one of them. Great job, keep up building things like this!

Thank you. Hope I can keep you interested :)

This is the first thing I've built in almost a year and I'm surprising pleased! (and it was fun build at that!) It doesn't quite pull off my weight but it acts as a great small table!

It took you only 2 hours to make?!

Probably more like 3 hours of actually building. Include me getting distracted and having to do homework more like 7 hours.


Some people actually want to pass there classes and get done with school

Wow! Looks great! I like the the red connectors on the legs better. I'm glad you like it :)

is it durable and strong enough to carry a lamp and other items. How many lbs can it carry?

KneXtreme (author)lopina2012-04-27

Yes it is. If you want to it's easy to make the legs longer and the top wider, that is if you are using it as a table. As to the weight, as far as I have tested it can support up to 200lb, but I would definitely add another cross brace for 150lb. and up.

MajorTemples (author)2012-04-14

Very nice, just made it and it can hold me easily (150lbs). 5*

KneXtreme (author)MajorTemples2012-04-14

Thank you.

shadowninja31 (author)2012-03-21

Looking nice man! Do you have any idea of how much weight it holds?

KneXtreme (author)shadowninja312012-03-22

Thanks. There is a link in the description that takes you to the specifics.
