crutches and bike parts make a stoolEver wonder what to do with all those bicycle parts that you know you can't throw away because someday they will have a use? Ever wonder what to do with those crutches that you hope you'll never need again?

Wonder no more, as I have found a great instructable on how to make a stool from spare bike parts and crutches. Ryan McFarland, aka zieak, went to the thrift store and purchased some old crutches. He took those old crutches, along with some bike wheels and inner tubes, a few bolts, a piece of plywood, and some insulation, and made an adjustable height stool with all those parts. Talk about ingenuity!

The complete instructions for the "bike-crutch stool" can be found at I don't know about you, but the inner tube seat doesn't appeal to me. I would certainly have to cover the insulation and plywood with something a little more feminine. For all you guys out there, this is probably the most manly thing though, right?
