My wife and I had received a stepstool like the one shown for a wedding present quite a while ago. We have both found it to be immensely handy to have in the kitchen. The handle on it saves having to stoop to pick up the stool when you need it.

I have since made a couple of these for wedding presents for other family.

I don’t normally go for the simple country look, but I like the way these turned out for some reason.

The combination of a dark dye, and poly made for a nice finish on the poplar wood.

Those are handy, even around the shop it would be nice for us short guys to reach that top shelf. Nice, great gift idea.

I like this stool.The handle is a great idea especially for old folks like me who don’t balance so well.
