Folding Plywood Stool


This thing is sweet!  If you watch the video you can really tell how surprised I am that this stool worked well the first time around, very sold, easy to make and so very functional.


I have always wanted a stool / chair in the shop but didn’t have a good place to put it when not in use, the solution….make a folding one! This design is based off a small gif file that I saw on pinterest while sitting at the court house waiting to be called into jury duty. I got out of there, thankfully, and was able to design this stool in the mean time.


The stool is make out of a few scraps of plywood and a few pairs of hinges, that’s all!

You will need 2 pairs of 2″ hinges and 5 pairs of 1.5″ hinges and a bunch of screws for the appropriate thickness plywood that you will be using. I used 1/2″ plywood and am very surprised how sturdy it is.

  1. This is great! I’m going to put one together tomorrow and get rid of my bar stool that takes up way too much space. Thanks, Tyler. I love your site and what you do.

  2. Hi Tyler,

    Thanks for the plans and video. Anyone who criticizes your stool needs a kick up the butt. This is what every shop needs, something light that can be hung on a wall. The video is good and the plans explain all.

    Thanks again,

  3. This is another great project. I plan to make one this weekend to use next week. I want to decoupage some images onto it (such a manly skill!) and I would like to put your logo on it. Can you send me an image file of your logo that I can print and use?
    I like the orange color scheme you use. Is there a reason you chose orange? I grew up in the land of UT Vols, so there was orange everywhere.
    Thanks, Bob
