Orphan Stools! They are everywhere!
Once proud members of a two or four piece collection they wait alone in their
dotage by the side of the road for a garbage truck to carry them to a
ignominious burial in the landfill.
Battered as they may be, most of these stools need little or no repair to
continue a useful life as a sturdy piece of furniture in a shop or other
rough and tumble environment.
Or… they can even be converted to new life as a base for an inexpensive
Commercial roller stands can easily cost up to 300 hundred dollars.
For most home shops this is a huge expense.
So, a reasonable alternative is to take some scrap PVC pipe, a yard sale
rolling pin ($1.00 in my neck of the woods), some elbows and a tee connector
and make a simple adjustable stand.
The stool is still available for every day use with the roller accessory
attached when needed.
