How to Order

This site  The Web 

It is now 28 March 2013, life has not allowed me to return to my shop and production.  I don't know when that will happen but I intend to keep this site and will return to production when I can.  If you know of a woodworker who is interested, I will make my plans available.Welcome to John's Cello Stools.

These stools are hand made in my shop out of Poplar.   The Studio Stool is intended to stay in the practice room.  It is adjustable in height from 12 inches to 17 inches.  The seat is 18 X 12 inches.  The stool weighs approximately 8 pounds.   The Travel Stool is also hand made in my shop out of Poplar.  It is adjustable from 11 inches to 17 inches.  The lower the bolts are set the taller the stool.  The seat is 14 X 12  inches.  The stool folds flat much like a TV tray.  Excellent for taking to lessons and recitals, this stool weighs about 6 pounds.

The designs of these two stools are my own modifications and adjustments to plans found in Suzuki publications.  If you would like to build your own,  these  plans should be available through your Suzuki instructor.  The original folding stool plans that I based my design on is by Masaaki Kubota at  An adjustable stool that allows your young cellist to have proper posture while playing is so important to their development as a player and to avoid injury.  Whether you get the plans and make your own, find a local place to purchase, or buy a stool from me, please support your child with the proper tools for the wonderful work that is making music.
