I actually completed this stool back in the Spring and realize I never posted it as a project.
My wife said she wanted a step stool to reach the upper shelves in the closet, but also wanted it to do double duty as a stand of sorts so it didn’t just look like a stool sitting in the corner. She wanted to put a plant or two on it and maybe some art object and then remove them to use the stool on the very limited occasions when she wanted to reach the top shelf in the walk-in.
I had some cherry I picked up without a use in mind and this seemed to be the perfect project for it. It also provided a relatively easy project for me to try my hand at with only hand tools. It was all planed and cut by hand. The structure is cherry and the trim is mahogany. It’s finished with a homemade wiping varnish.
