This Foot Stool is made of Pennsylvania Pine, it is 10" high x at least 19.5" long and a solid 2" Thick, it has been sanded 4 times with increasing grades before it is stained, followed by 4 hand-brushed coats of Marine Spar Varnish making it durable to getting wet, can be used outside as well as inside. I leave natural deviations in the wood such as divets and knots giving each piece I make it's own unique look. It is very sturdily constructed, has not been tested for weight limit but has had as much as 300 Lbs on a single one, and a Lumber Mill bundle of lumber on 4 of them. The brace underneath is designed so you can easily maneuver the foot stool into new positions with just your foot, which makes it easier if you are carrying something. In addition to being used to give you a boost to reach higher areas, it can be used as a seat for children, a foot rest at the floor of your favorite chair, outdoor furniture, desk. As well as a great way to remove shoes in your mud room, or a seat to keep you off the ground while gardening!
