I love the creativity of someone who is probably not working as a
carpenter now, due to the economy, and is trying to generate some
cash, and maybe start a new business. Good luck to them and I say
Great Idea.

i bought one of those at a second hand shop here in NZ decades ago.
still have it, use it and love it.
iirc, i paid NZ$7 for it.
i dont think they make them here anymore. have never seen them in shops
brand new.
i hope when i'm gone someone keeps and loves this as much as i do.
mil was convinced she'd given this to me but i know better.
i dont recall ever seeing one in her house when i first arrived in nz and we
lived with them for the first year here so i'd surely see it.
oh well.

I have a woodworking pattern for one.  Just waiting for someone to
offer to make it up for me!

Had some library steps/chair once, but they always wobbled.  Not H&S
at all.  So we parted company.  I do like things to be functional.

Love Victorian engineering...  cogs and pulleys with curlycues and
wrought ironwork.

I think this was called a "Ben Franklin" chair.   I have one my mother got
for me at a crafts fair years ago.  Mine had the ironing board already
padded and covered, along with an attached pillow for the chair seat.  I
love mine and  use it all the time.
