Making a Franklin chair ( folding step stool)

I was fascinated with the duality of function that this chair/stool offered for our rathet modest kitchen and after much deliberation I made a stab at making one.
I found this particularly challenging as the plan I chose left a bit to be desired and some of the measurements were wrong making me go back and re-mill , recut and reglue. The 4/4 lumber I had available turned out to be 15/

16" which gave me frightmares trying to mill it to 12/16"(3/4")
