How To Build A Custom Metal Grenade Stool

Thinking about building your own cool grenade stool? Check out this fun DIY metal project where I build this really cool grenade style stool!

WooHoo! The time has come for me to release a very exciting project I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. As my contribution to a recent group project for Lincoln Electric, I designed and fabricated a Grenade Stool from 11 gauge carbon steel that came out looking incredible. The design is super sturdy and damn near bomb proof (lol….see what I did there? lol). I showcased it for the first time at FabTech 2017 and the reception was so great.

As you can see these pieces of furniture resemble an old WW2 “Pineapple” hand grenade. With different sizes and materials available you can decide which of the options works best for you. If you think building one of these sounds like a lot of fun, I’m right there with you.

These work perfectly as a cool end table to compliment nearly any space. However, if the need arises, the smaller version can quickly double as a sitting stool around the kitchen island, family table, or in the shop while you handle the spanners on whatever you may be working on.

Ultimately I think this is a really versatile piece of furniture that has a ton of character and is a guaranteed conversation starter.

Thank you so much for stopping by to learn about this exciting project. I really appreciate your support and will see you on whatever it is I build next.

Cheers – April
