I really must begin by pointing out how deceiving this stool is based on the price! It's so inexpensive to be such high quality! If I were walking the aisles while shopping and saw this chair sitting next to all the other similar ones (that are three times the price or more), I would think it was cheaply made and not purchase it. I must point out that my father has another Craftsman adjustable chair (much more pricey, fancier looking and a vinyl padded stool), and I kid you not, his broke the first month he had it. This stool is super sturdy, was very easy to assemble, and just so darn handy. My husband actually got me one too, because I have a tendency to slouch while doing DIY/ crafty things. I love it in my craft room! It doesn't roll nearly as well on carpet, but it still rolls enough for me, and even has a nifty tray underneath, which gives me an extra handy spot to put things I'm often reaching for. I love it!
