I made 2 units of finger joint step stool for my little daughter.

please check the attahced video, that shows the whole process:

the stools are made from a used beech solid shelf i found in the trash.
I’m using matthias wandel screw advance box joint jig, a very powerful and accurate jig. see all the information about that jig here:

Im using TBIII glue, and the finish is wood sealer and two coats of spray lacquer.
My saw is Hammer K3 sliding table saw.

Thanks for watching

Nice step stool, looks like she likes it.
if I had a scientific calculater I might be able to figure out how much glue surface you have. I can’t imagine that ever coming apart even with some jumping on it.

Lovely stool. The joint becomes quite a design feature. Nice. And a fine video as well.
Thanks for sharing!
