    Great project, but your PDF plans link to the Sketchup files (9/28/18, 1:30pm eastern).

    Do you think some paste wax on the dowels would make it open and close easier, or just make them more likely to work their way out with repeated flexing.

    Could you consider publishing metric plans as well?

      Second this request….. As you have a truly global audience Steve and that the US is really the only place left doing imperial we….. The rest of the world…. Would live it if you adopted the metric system.

        Click on the link & convert the pdf plans yourself. It took me 5 minutes to convert from imperial to metric. I just added the metric values next to the imperial ones

          Nice tool – bookmarked.

          I just changed the settings on the SketchUp project before to convert the values.

    I used to use a stool like this when I was in the society for Creative anachronism. A lot of people use them and they use the same basic idea to make folding tables. I had a number of them that I used to use when I was selling my Celtic merchandise at events.
    Steve perhaps you could do a table version and published the plans as well as doing a video, that would be pretty neat

    I think i might make up a few this weekend, to give away at christmas. Although i dont plan on making the dowel hinges all the way through, im going to drill the holes only partway through, to keep the dowels captive when the wood changes dimensionally with humidity.

    Steve thank you for your 10 years of videos. I just recently found wwmm and decided to tackle a project, your folding camp seat, having little experience I knew it would be more than 2 hours. Add in the fact that I only have battery hand tools, 4 1/2 later, I now have a folding camp stool. I plan on making a second one, hopefully much better looking than the first HAHA.

    Would finishing before assembly affect the moving parts any???

    Great project!
