Daughter needed a step to get into her new big girl bed. Live edge Black walnut with BW and Maple dovetailed base the top is pocket screwed on. History on the Black Walnut… When I was around 5 years old my father cut down a BW tree in my grandmother’s yard, two men couldn’t get their arms around it. He used most of it throughout his life but there was about half a pickup truck left of scrap type things lots of bark small pieces, branches etc. I asked on another forum how to make boards out of them and multiple people were offended that I would even think about cutting them off so began my “live edge phase”

Well done on the step stool. I agree the two woods look great together.
