The library chair solves the problem of having two pieces of furniture where there's really only room for one. Folded over itself, it's a sturdy step stool; otherwise, it's a comfortable straight-backed chair that is not all that costly or difficult to build. The chair converts to a stool by unhooking a latch and folding the back forward.

Most of the chair parts have duplicate right and left pieces; the supporting pieces on the inside are cut to match each other and the face boards they attach to.
