Be nice if one could crank that chair higher than office desk height use, but then it might tip over, haha.

Actually it cranks up much higher than an office desk height Caslon, it's designed for a tall drafting table. My problem with it being that high is I'd need a step stool to mount it. What a pretty picture that would be.

Cool. Just push against the counter to go from one area to another. Don't get stranded.

My new cooking tool.

Filing this one away. DH has a hydraulic desk chair out in the garage that was a castoff from a local factory, it has all sorts of heights. I don't need it, yet.

I like the idea of motorizing it though.

Nice wheels, Kayelle!

I have an old barstool I use when I really need to sit. The only problem is none of my counters hang over air. When desperate, I have been known to take out the basket of cleaning items from under the sink, creating a knee-hole for me. The problem then is that I'm over the sink. Good for trimming/peeling/washing, bad for cutting/chopping. I have pulled out a narrow drawer to use as support for a cutting board, but that can cause all sorts of clumsy problems on its own!

You might need to put the boarding step on wheels too...

Nice stool!
Posing stools with footrest can be raised quite high and would be perfect for high kitchen counters.

Going to build a ramp and step up all around the cabinets so I can reach the counter while cooking.

Glad you like it guys! I must say that my stool could be better if it could raise while sitting on it. It will lower while sitting on it, but not raise. Maybe really expensive ones will do that but not this $80 one.

(the grammar police may say I should have said rise instead of raise.)
