A 2step your ready for dancing with the stars :))
Cool design Steve I like that it has a lower center of gravity versus many of the shaker style stools.

Just today I was thinking I need to build a step stool and here you are with a great example. Karma I guess. Thanks for the prod.

Hi Steve,

I don’t know how you do it, I’ve been thinking about building a step-stool for a couple of days now. My son’s (4 yrs.) best friend got a gigantic trampoline that’s sitting in our community-owned garden behind the house. Still missing: A step-stool for the younger kids to get on that thing safely.

Your step-stool design rocks, the beetle kill pine looks terrific on that larger project. I like it better than on the door harp because it shows more clearly that it’s design, not just poorly cleaned or sanded wood.

With these curves it’s one of my favourite designs of yours.

Thanks once again!

Always nice to see your Friday videos. Sometimes a ‘Silent Movie’ is all that is needed.

Thanks guys. It was a bit of a panic to get this one together in time for a Friday post, hence the silent movie. It’s really hard to get things together in the summer!

Steve, another great simple project. I’m amazed at how fast you produce projects much less film and edit the video for the blog. Thanks for sharring.
