its not quite like your favorite chair or the desk you work at, even though it serves similar functions...
You may not even use it everyday, but when you want to put your feet up,
or reach for a book on the highest shelf,
its an under appreciated convenience to have one of these crickets at hand.
The following tutorial is a revision of a prototype I built a while back. This time around It took about a week to build, working a few hours a day, taking time to snap photographs and record video throughout most of the process. Hopefully these instructions will help you cut down the time it takes to build your very own foot stool.
