  • Once again, I love your enthusiasm! The only thing I would add to the chair is a beer bottle opener.

  • A seat you can drink. Just don't drink too much or you may fall off... Good work as always!

  • In North America, we'd call that a 'Milk Crate Chair.' We ship milk bottles and cartons in that sort of plastic case (which private individuals usually cannot get hold of, and used to be a popular item to steal because they happen to fit vinyl records quite neatly), and buy our bottled beer in cardboard boxes with cardboard dividers.

  • Nice design and build! What if you made a cushion that fit inside on the underside when not in use, but once put on a crate, it goes on top. Would make it a bit more comfortable for those long nights of drinking, err, I mean sitting.

  • She is skinny so the back works for her. fat folks will need to have the back re-enforced...metal would have to be involved. Otherwise, good concept. Is this for the camper? What is your status?

  • Super coole Idee. Am Anfang der Party ein hoher Barhocker und je mehr getrunken wird, desto näher ist man am Boden. Das minimiert die alkoholbedingte Verletzungsgefahr. Du denkst wirklich an alles. Danke fürs Zeigen Gruß Sascha

  • I’m imagining a party where as you drink, you keep adding cases to the chair, and by the end of the night you have to climb a ladder to sit down.

  • Love the idea, but can you adapt the design to fit a milk crate? My family finds more use for milk crates while camping, fishing, etc. They are also stack up just like the crates you used.

  • That's an awsome chair design, but mine is so much easier to build: 1. Get a beer case. 2. Flip it over. 3. Open a beer 4. Sit down. 4.a Optional: Put a pillow on it before sitting down.

  • These last few projects especially have been awesome. I wonder if you/we could build a work/stepstool in this style. Similar to the table, but strong enough to stand on.

  • Nice idea! But you could do it much better by using a Gaffel-Kölsch case instead the Zunft Kölsch case. Regards from the "Gaffel im Marienbild" at Aachener Strasse Cologne.

  • That's cool, love that hinge!! I wonder if there is room under the seat for a couple fold out legs with the same hinges? Another place I could see this being really handy if the base was notched to fit over boat seat benches- would be really handy for fishing :) Thanks Laura!

  • Great “over the box” thinking but if your friends are anything like mine you will be getting up every 15 seconds. Add a bottle cap opener and some fold out legs so that the cooler will slide out and you will have people bowing at your feet.

  • Very clever variable height chair. I am not sold on the wood hinge, it appears to be weak point. I do know much about the wood you are using. Maybe a V 2.1 hinge project would be a hardwood dowel refit kit?
