I recently finished this little step stool for my granddaughter who is a preemie. Born 12 weeks premature weighing 1 lb. 10 oz., she quickly was nicknamed “Peanut” by my wife. She is 8 months old now and doing great! Stool is made of reclaimed VG fir except small piece of poplar which was an afterthought as I decided to make a special compartment under the lid and needed a piece of wood to mount hinges to. The pic that says made by Nana and Papa is actually the bottom of special compartment. The pyrography and painting were done by my wife. Hand and foot prints are actual size taken the day after she was born. Stool is finished with Zinsers shellac. This project holds a very special place in my heart!
