This is another not-really-a-tool, but an object I love and use in the course of my studio day. It's a stool-tool! It belonged to my Nana, who carpeted it (?!) and then became a feature in the kitchen of my childhood home for a long, long time. Steps up and it's the right height for sitting at the banding wheel - steps down and I can clamber up to things stored high. Perfect. And I still think of Nan every time I use it.
