I want to make a useful thing. One of my design goals, is to never make anything that I can't use (or enjoy making and sell). So I would like to make a stool, because stools are useful. There are a few directions I am considering going, all of which I have curated separate photo collections for. ...Along the way I fell in love with some chairs, like this one. But this design is so simplistic, it would copied, rather than drawn from. Below are photos of the two directions I am deciding between. The challenge in my design so far as been ergonomic use of the rather small laser cutting bed.
