I'm looking for a few wooden stools, the kind used along with rocking boards etc. for gross motor play in waldorf kindergarten classrooms. Can't seem to find them via google. Used would be awesome, or even plans to build your own! But I'll shell out the dough for new if I have to. They are so versatile for creative and active play.

I think know what you are talking about, but I can't pin down what they're called.  Are you talking about the kind that can be flipped over into a sort of table/stairs?  We have a Curvy Board, which is really great.

 

Open Ended Creations sells Curvy Boards, but they aren't stools, exactly. http://www.etsy.com/shop/openendedcreations

 

Magic Cabin has this kind of rocker board, too.  I can't get the link to copy over, though.  It's in indoor active play.

No, although those are awesome too. I did find one actually just now, but it's expensive as I'd expected. :(

I wonder if I could make it. I'm a very amatuer woodworker but it looks simple enough. Hmmm....

We have these kitset stools at home: http://www.mocka.co.nz/wooden-stools-4.html (prices in NZ $). I'm not sure if they ship internationally or not. I suspect Ikea would have something similar, although they aren't an exact fit for the ones you were looking for.

OOh, IKEA is a good idea. Thanks!
