A step stool for the Wee One so he can wee with ease. A refreshing change of pace after that lingerie dresser.

Modeled after the Shaker step stool, just… scaled down a bit.

When He jumps off of the stool I can hear what he’s say. LOL! Wait till he asks for a WeII. Then it’s all electronics????

@Tom Regnier – Yep! It’s a great practice project because it has such a small penalty for errors. There are only 7 parts. If you screw it up, you can just start over. The dovetails are on display though, so keep trying until you get them close enough so that every time you sit on the toilet and look at it, it won’t bother you. :)

Thank you for posting this Steve, especially the dimensions. I have shamelessly copied it for my wee one.
