By popular request, we are releasing the design files for our famous 555 Footstool project.
The design is made from 23 pieces of 1/2″ hardwood plywood, laminated together, in a sort of manual 3D printing process.
The design files are in Inkscape SVG format, and you can download the design here (a 28 kB .zip file).

this is the best piece of furniture ever created. <3
Very nice! Time to fire up the ShopBot! Thanks.
Bless you sir! May I have the Vcarve files? This will look great in the Maker Studio! Functional and educational!
What do those groves on the pieces do? Do I have to cut the slanted ends after gluing the pieces together? I see no slanted pieces in the photo.
Please see the fabrication notes in the design.
This is great! I made my own version on these files several years ago after seeing your design. I measured the images and made drawings. Never used them afterwards… I should pull mine back out and compare to see how close I was. Thanks for releasing these!
Cool, I added it to the list of open source furniture designs: http://makingsociety.com/2013/02/20-open-source-furniture-designs/
oo my good very good
I really thank you very nice design.
Thank you for finally doing this! Now I have to find a local wood mill that has CNC capabilities.
One thing I’m confused about: Isn’t there 15 hex pieces, not 13? I count 15 on the drawing and in the picture above.
