I used 1X Miller Dowels, No screws and Watco Danish Oil. Walnut and I think Ash , some scraps that I’ve had for years. The book is discounted at Amazon I paid $7.98 But this is a easy one day project.
Top Step 16 X 7.75
Front legs 22.25 X 4” cut at 60°
Rear legs 19.0375 X 3” cut at 20° round off inside corner at 1 1/16 radius
The Pivot hole is critical I taped rear legs and drilled them both then taped them to the front and drilled them. About 1.25 from the edges.
I have a small lathe so I cut the step dowel but the same could have been produced by inserting a 1/2” dowel into a 1” dowel with glue
2 two” slats support the rear legs. Tools used
Biscuit Jointer on both steps,
Table Saw, Band saw (radius on rear leg) router table, belt & random orbit sanders, and some clamps.
I made this last weekend after seeing Todd’s photo.http://lumberjocks.com/projects/915
Looks much nicer than the molded plastic POS I had been using.
