Not much to explain…
Needed a “Leg-up”, one-step sort of thing… As usual, not knowing how to build a step stool brings out the fun in building one…
Also (per usual) there was no glue or metal used in the construction, the several scraps used were pegged together with Wooden dowel…
Height is 8”, and the Length a little over 18”...
Almost completely Band Saw work for this, Thanks for looking!

Not much to explain indeed! so where have you been for so long and why didnt you reply to my post in Jun ?
Please explain

Looks like a very good step to somewhere,.... again explain its use please!

Pegging… way to go,... just check out the japanese craftsman doing their skills.

Even with only three pictures and a bare minimum story (several scraps of something?) I shall have to give you a thumbs up!

Hey, Mike, good to see you are still at it!

Nice looking little step stool but I wonder where you hid the wooden hinges ;^)

Nice bench/stool. Kind reminds me on Flintstone’s style.

Mike, nice job. I like the simplicity and functionality of the design. Nice arch on the bottom of the legs. You know me, I would have flared the legs out at the bottom and rounded all the edges until it looked like a used bar of soap. Your stool should last several lifetimes and be sturdy and strong. Well done. Keep building and keep posting.

Hi Mike, How’ve you been ! Good to see you posting gain, now if I could just my rear in gear too, we could be counted back among the living. Hope you are feeling well. Don S.
