This is my new, Amish stool which I really like! The tall handle works very well for toting it here and there, and makes for some good support. It has already come in handy in my kitchen and cottage. I think it will be useful when my grandchildren come for washing their hands and brushing their teeth at the bathroom vanity. Since it is made of solid oak and by the Amish, I'll most likely have it for years to come.
