Here’s a shaker inspired step stool built completely with hand tools. It’s made from pine and finished with clear shellac. A fun and quick project. Thanks for looking!

You can watch how I made it here: <—>s 3 parts, this is the first.

Nice stool. I’ve been planning something very similar to this to help my elderly cat get up on the bed. I’m planning to build drawers into the back side to store his stuff in. Thanks for posting this!
