Having a soon to be 3 year old grand daughter gives me a great excuse to play in the shop. I built this step stool for her. The sides were made from a single piece of peruvian walnut, hand planed from rough cut 4/4 to about 3/4. The step treads are Black American Walnut, also hand planed from 4/4 stock. The slightly irregular DT’s were hand cut. The finish is two coats of BLO followed by 4 coats of a 2# cut of HOCKS, Blonde dewaxed shellac. Built from Tommy MacDonalds MLW website, Project #2,The Ira Richer Shaker Step Stool plans.
Merry Christmas Ya’ll
