We have identified that there is a niche for retromodern stools for practical use at home. The stools are compact,  non-intruding  and also not obstructing. This is an adult size stool which has a seat height of 46cm and useful for puuting on shoes at the house entrance, reaching for items in the high shelf and also children to stand on to watch and help their mother preparing dinner.  

 

The term milking stool is used as it is not uni-directional and also the user is supposed to repositon as often as needed unlike bar stools.

 

The construction method employed is mortise and tennon joints and no nails or screws used.  The chosen material is bonded oak for this prototype but the final production may be either oak or beech.
