Ultimate Workshop Stool





Introduction: Ultimate Workshop Stool

Well this is my Workshop stool made from a single 2x4 of 12 feet long

Wach the video

It has

  • Built in vise
  • BenchDogs
  • Magnetic strip
  • Extension support for mittersaw
  • Saddle Bag For tools and screws

It takes about 1 day to built and some scrap from my shop

i think the most difficult part is the end of the vise to make the ACME screw turn it taka about 2 hours to figure ot what i was doing XD

The aproximated cost of the project was $20 USD and some scrap pipe

Im glad to hear your comments

Sorry for the bad english it is not my native language.

Step 1: The Vise

The vise have a 5/8 ACME Screw with a ACME screw coupler inserted by pressure into 3 layers of 3/4 inch plywood

The tubing on the sides of the screw prevent prom rolling the moving part theay are 5/8 diameter

The handle have a welded knob witha a hole to put the handle also a machined washer screwed to the wood this pull out the moving part when you untwist the screw

Step 2: BenchDogs

The bench dogs are made form aluminium 1 inch on the superior part and 3/4 inch on the inferior part also I milled onse side flat to make the grip to the atached pice

Step 3: Extension Support

This Extension suport is just one of the pieces of the top splited in hal and with 2 5/8 tubing

Step 4: Saddle Bags

The saddle bag are made from scrap cloth

Step 5: Enjoy

I always said ultimate in my projects , At least for me when I get out for ideas to adding atachments to my multitool creations

    Awesome and inspiring build! What did you use to cut the aluminum bench dogs? I don't have any welding material other than a propane torch, so I'll probably have to cut some hardwood dowels.

    Actually you dont need to weld anithing to make the bench dogs,but you need a metal lathe to make them also a milling machine , Thanks for your commment

    one hellava idea!

    i may shamelessly copy the little beauty

    Very creative. Nice work. It would be a valuable tool in any workshop.

    Thanks, I have used much more than I spect

    I don't see the video :(
    I'm very interested in seeing how you built this workshop stool!

    Maybe you're watching via app in your phone or tablet, for the momment instructables doesnt allow to watch videos in app , watch it via Your desktop computer

    I see. Thank you :)

    I have a few aluminium bench dogs, because they are tough, lite weight & will not rot.

    You are going to date everything so your gran kids will know how old they are.
