Introduction: Knex Stool Instructions

     After several comments asking for instructions, here it is, my knex stool. I couldn't take the seat apart (where the legs connect to the top) very well. So if you need more pictures please ask. Thanks to TheRacker for the idea about the tires. Enjoy building.
     p.s. If you want specifics and more pictures of it finish (without tires) here is the link.

                        Parts List
  • grey connectors - 56
  • light grey connectors - 28
  • red connectors - 72
  • green connectors - 40
  • yellow connectors - 20
  • white connectors - 35
  • orange connectors - 28
  • purple connectors - 173
  • blue connectors - 25

  • silver spacer - 9
  • medium tires - 8
  • black hinge hinge half - 2
  • hinges or ball and sockets - 8

Step 1: The Seat Part 1

The seat is pretty complex. If you need more pictures please ask.

Step 2: The Seat Part 2

Step 3: Connecting the Seat

Connecting the seat was kind of tricky to photograph so make sure to read the image notes.

Step 4: The Legs Part 1

The hinges can be exchanged for ball and sockets.

Step 5: The Legs Part 2 and the Cross Brace

Step 6: Attaching the Legs and Cross Brace

After attaching the legs and cross brace you'll be done.

Step 7: Finish

Great job :) Now your done!

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

where would i put another support and how?

author
KneXtreme made it!(author)2012-05-10

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.

author

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?

author
KneXtreme made it!(author)2012-05-14

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!

author
KneXtreme made it!(author)2012-03-11

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?!

author
Killer%7ESafeCracker made it!(author)2012-03-17

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

author
cool+knex13 made it!(author)2012-03-23

IM DOING SOME NOW!

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?

author
KneXtreme made it!(author)2012-04-27

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.

author
MajorTemples made it!(author)2012-04-14

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