The WoodStool is the design of a footstool. Simple but functional. The Woodstool has many functions: a seat, a stair and for example a kids table.

The very strong construction is caused by the cross underneath the seat. The cross is covered by three sheets of wood, connected with eight pieces of Alpha hardware.
There can be made two Woodstools out of one sheet of plywood with minimal waste.

The Woodstool can easily be dismantled by shoving the sheets apart, so the stool can be flat-packed and stored in the closet. When there are visitors, the Woodstool can occur.
