Can those parts actually move? Or is this just a model?

Sorry to be a negative nelly but where are the instructions? Could you at least add an explanation of how this stool is unique or interesting? Looks like you're confusing instructables with a wobsite where people just dump pictures without explanation, like facebook or flickr.

Thank you for comment!

It's too hard to assemble parts. So, I'm making this stool's tutorial now. Please wait a little while more.

Picture's are nice... not a lot of it being assembled or used though. I'm sure the part resources are greatly appreciated by anyone who wants to make this but I'm afraid these instructions may be a little lacking. "Make parts. Assemble parts." It sounds like hyperbole but that's exactly what it says.

Very nice finished product. If I designed it myself I would definitely make it taller.
