My First Woodworking Project
I made this in 8th grade with all hand tools, sweat and tears! Being that I turn 50 this year I guess I am starting to reminisce, it means way more to me now than when I built it.

Awesome! I love seeing early projects. It shows a history a story line of how you grow as a man and a wood worker, from way back then to now.

Ofcourse, it’s priceless when you make it with your hands. Nice project.

Nice job, I like that cut out in the center of the top. It matches the scroll work on the legs.

” it means way more to me now than when I built it.”
What A great statement, only those of us that still have stuff we made as kids understand the real meaning of it.
Great stool and a time enduring design.

Each of my grand kids got a step stool when they were two or three years old, so that they could get up to the sink and wash up like the big kids … And it was their first piece of furniture … Most of the g-kids are in their late teens and mid twenty’s now and they all still have their step stools.
