Step stool. Modeled after one we received as a gift from my uncle a few years ago. I really like the grain in the walnut. Finish is min wax gloss polyurethane.

Good looking step stool! And yes the walnut grain gives it a high quality look!

That walnut is beautiful and contrasts nicely with the simple painted side pieces. Nice work on the finish as well.

Nice looking step stool. Was the back support an after thought? It did not look like it had the same finish as the walnut.

Much nicer than the one I purchased at IKEA. Nice work!

I may have to make one like that. Mine has been used around my 200g reef tank and is salt stained. That would look great in our kitchen where the 40” top cabinets are mounted 24” above the counter.

Thanks for all the kind words. The back support and the other cross members are oak.

No doubt, this is a nice looking stool. I’m not sure I would want to step on it.
