This was a lot cheaper than having her go out and buy a pair of platform shoes. I dug up some extra fir pieces for the body and added a touch of walnut stain to accent the screw plugs. I also put a few degrees of flair on the legs so it wasn’t so boxy.

Nice one Tim – I went out with a girl who was five foot nuthin’ , she could’ve done with one of your stools – maybe you’ve found a niche market :o)

My wife will tell you that she is 5 feet 1/4 inches tall…... we have a step stool for her to use… but she simply calls me to get things from “upper shelves” ... or second shelf or higher to the rest of world…
so nice build but good luck getting it to be used when you are around.. :)

Yeah my wife is short. Puts here at an acceptable backhand level when she gets mouthy. Don’t tell Her I said that. Or I might get one.

I cannot tell if you have made one for the right or left foot.
Once you have finished both how are they held on her feet?

I’m just gonna drop this here…. it seems appropriate, and some of our wives might want to print it out to put on the fridge door.

My wife is 5 1/2 inch and that 1/2 inch realy matters to her.
I’m 6” 3’ ish and the ish bit dont matter none to me.
The cat is 12 inches at the shoulder, she gives my wife someone to look down on.
