This is a classic Shaker style foot stool used to kick your feet up while sitting at your computer desk or at your home watching television. They also make perfect home decor pieces and can be used to put a plant, photo, or other nick nacks on. The one shown in the photos were constructed with Poplar stained with an ebony stain to bring out the greens in the wood and Purple Heart for the supporting cross bar. These items are not build to be stood on however. The tops of these items boast beautifully exposed jointing as well. They measure 24" across, 18" in height, and 8" wide.
