By Jason Fitzpatrick on June 30th, 2011

If you just can’t find the appropriate footstool for your laboratory, this laser-cut footstool styled to look like the ubiquitous 555 Timer should fit the bill.

At Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories they were in search for the perfect footstool. Never ones to do something halfway they set out to build a footstool shaped like the famous integrated circuit design the 555 Timer. The project involved computer design, CNC routers, laser engraving, lots of plywood and glue, and paint.
