Nice stool/s, it almost looks like you could hinge the top for some storage Bob.

Great looking step stool. Work on posting larger pictures so we can better admire your hard work.

Hi Bob,

I think this is truely a lovely piece from a design and interpretation point of view. You’ve taken a fairly common basic idea, and added a lot of yourself into this. The result, to my eye, is a very refined piece that’s many notches above a simple step stool.

Looks really good. Is the sliding step captured in any way, or can it slide completely out?
