Mr. Klonbeast Is Too Excited To Sleep!

In exactly one week, seven days from now, Klondike starts BravoPup’s invitation only advanced performance (tricks) workshop, Performance Three. And what to do? As Summer performance season rapidly approaches, should we polish up last year’s show, Klondike’s Fire and Earthquake Safety Symposium ? Do something  totally new? Klondike has always wanted to record a collection of his acoustic numbers with the London Philharmonic. He could start practising for that.

But whatever the workshop turns into, we’ll be sitting in grand style, because the Klondike performance  stool has been upgraded.

The old stool  worked fine but… to keep it stable when Klondike jumped on, jumped off or stood up on it I had to stand on the piece of plywood screwed to the bottom. Functional, yes, elegant no.

Using My Left Foot To Stabilize

And, even worse, the stool wouldn’t fit into the trunk of my new car

Too big for the trunk, and not entirely safe to put in the back with Klondike

After a couple of dead ends, Klondike and I reached out to Jan Saeger, local furniture maker extraordinaire

Jan then brought in Ian, the friendly machinist (and retired Red Cross rescue supervisor) next door, and vola! The new Klondike stool!

The New Klondike Stool! Stable, Strong, With Easy Disassembly

The new stool features an extra heavy base for stability (no more using my foot!) and quickly disassembles at both base and platform for easy transportation.
