I made a step stool for my friend and his granddaughter. The wood was from a barn he tore down on his property. My best guess is Bass wood. It’s got to be something native to Wisconsin from about a hundred years ago. It was hard. I don’t know if part of the hardness was due to the aging. The step stool is about 11 inches wide with the first step just under 5 inches and the top of the second 10 inches. 12 inches from front to back. Lots of character to the wood from insect tracks. Should get her up to the counter level as she’s just about 2 years old.
