https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4BlNiZCJQY I needed a way to access higher shelves in my workshop, so I made myself a step stool out of some pallet wood! I hope you enjoy!
Today I broke down and clean up some of the cherry I purchased for Christine’s step stool. After seeing the Shaker stool posted here the other day, she said “I like that one”. So that’s what it will be. No arguments here. If she’s happy the world is a great place ;) I’m going to try and do as much of this with just hand tools, as I can. I certainly made a lot of curly shavings getting things squared up. However, I think my hand planing skills stil...
Most of them are, but it’s such a nice day here, it felt better. Put a few coats of spray-on Minwax fast drying poly on the prototype step stool while it was still unassembled and then went and grabbed some lunch at a nearby foodie place. There’s quite a few in the area you wouldn’t even know they exist if you weren’t looking. Kind of makes you think they’re trying to keep them a secret for just the young hipsters that occupy many of the artsy community shops ...
Step Stool I was always having to bring down my wifes step stool from the kitchen…enough was enough…make one for the shop. You Tube here we come for ideas and I found one that just fit the needs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHMzNRpScI8 This swing out step stool is ideal for my limited space and when you need it, swing out the lower stool and there you have it. I had some Pine laying around from old shelves that fir the bill.
Here is a Step Stool that I made recently. It turned out great. Check out my video below and I have a more detailed entry over at my other site on woodlogger.com Youtube Link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wj8GI1r9IU
I decided to take my wife’s strong hinting that dowels would “look better” than capped screws as a justification to pick up some new woodworking tools and accessories. Stopped by my local Woodcraft this evening and picked up a dowel center set. I almost spent some more money for a doweling jig, but decided to use my Kreg shelf pin jig to make myself a drill guide (I don’t have a drill press at home). After a few minutes of creative clamping (no vise either) and dril...
A few weeks ago, I was looking through my humble wood stash and saw a few large boards of remaining fir from my Wing Chun Dummy project and wondered what I could make for my family that would be a practical use of material. Later that day, I had to lift my daughter up to the sink to wash her hands, when it hit me that a step stool would be useful. Knowing that I have plans on making the Popular Woodworking I Can Do That Step Stool, I had to come up with a different design for the fir. Be...
Lolas step stoolrestored with love. I have a friend in Denmark Lola is her name.Lola is not only a wonderful person a writer and a poet of nature, she is also the owner of this wonderful old stool, that is a family piece.But…The stool was falling apart, so when I visited her home last year on her birthday, I offered her to bring it to my workshop and give it back life, simply for the pleasure of it. Tired after years of use, it needed nothing but a gentle hand to fall apart. Ba...
I have seen this design around for a while, and I wanted to make one for my niece. I decided to make a prototype out of low cost wood to see if the geometry worked out. My biggest concern was fingers getting pinched when moving the step up and down. The stool came out pretty good, I think I will add another dowel to the front of the stool so that the back doesn’t swing all the way down when you pick it up.
Watch this video that gives a quick tour of the furniture I’ve built for my kitchen and family room. The rooms share an open space and this video shows the placement of the furniture in both areas. This table and chair set was a major project completed in two phases. The first phase included the first four chairs and the table. I completed the first chair in Jan 93 and the fourth in Oct 93. The table was completed in Nov 93. The second phase was the fifth and sixth chairs co...
