This stool has seen better days. And you might think I’m lazy for claiming it as one of the best tools in my shop, but it’s great. I love it. I also get a bit nostalgic about it, as I spent many hours as a child, hanging out on it, in my parents antique store. It’s been around the block a time or two.
I use it to sit on, (obviously), and rest my feet. I use it to get the best angles on a blade or handle while sharpening or rasping, (lowering my working height). I use it to set my tools on while standing and rasping or filing. It’s great. KLR
