We have a very special place in our hearts for a good solid stool. Anybody that grew up watching their father work in the garage knew that he had a trusty stool that had been in the family longer than we had been alive. It was usually covered in oil stains and was made of fabric on top and had begun to rip apart over the years. The wooden legs would creak and moan in pain as he moved but it somehow never broke. Fast forward to today and we no longer have garages. We have man caves that are equipped with full seating and TV’s with our own fridges. If we were able to add a kitchen and stand up urinal, we would probably never leave the garage. With all of these modern amenities, that old ratty stool will no longer fit with the rest of our decor.
We found a stool that would make your father’s father be jealous. Jake Phipps is a designer that has created some very cool furniture designs but hit the lottery with his latest creation called the Shell Stool. The stool comes in a bronze or silver finish that is extremely shiny and mirrors a spent shell casing. You can use a single one as stool or have the ability to join multiple ones together and create a coffee table that would make Stallone jealous. We don’t know if he based these off of an actual caliber or just envisioned what a super tank’s bullet would look like. We thought the price was a little high for these but when you look at the design, you can tell that Phipps took a lot of time and effort to create these. We were surprised to see that the stools were good either inside or out so you could also create some cool setups on the deck as these should weather the storms.
