Lots of folks have stools - so I shopped for those. Specifically stools with storage inside since space is at a premium on the boat!!
This is a photo I grabbed from a similar boat. These stools are nice, but they're too short. You feel like your elbows are being pulled up if you sit near the table on them.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a stool tall enough to purchase online. Most were in the 16" tall range. The table needs something in the 19-20" range to be comfortable.
Since I have a resident handy-man, I asked him to make me one of course!
Before I knew it, he had the basic structure done. Just scrap material.
I went up in the attic and found an old blanket to use as batting. Measured and cut to fit.
Stapled the blanket material around the box.
I had gone to the local thrift shop and found some cool fabric - $1.50!
I pieced it together to wrap the box tightly.
Then we pulled the fabric tight and stapled it in place.
Next was the lid/seat. Duane made the frame out of some old plywood and some pine boards.
We cut out a cushion for the top out of the left-over foam from the sling seat.
Made a "box" out of fabric for the lid.
Fabric stretched and stapled in place.
Will try it out in the next few days when we get back to the boat!
