These are really beautiful! I had purchased a small step stool from a charitable organization in the are that was raising money for slightly disabled adults. The stools they made were quite unstable and a couple of times it almost tipped when I on it. I felt bad but I wound up throwing it out. :(
Yours not only look beautiful, but sturdy and stable too. What a great job!

I like the visible, purposeful construction here… they look very solid!
Not only to they look like they’d hold-up under normal use, but they’re attractive to boot.
Have you made any with multiple wood species? For instance, I’m wondering if you did the sides out of one wood, the treads out of another, and the stringers out of a third?
Maybe walnut for the treads, maple for the frame, and zebrawood for the stringers?
Or even if you just used an accent wood for the stringers to lend a bit of contrast.
See, now you’ve got me to thinking. I don’t even need a step stool or have any requests for step stools, but now I want to build one! Add another project to my (already) long list of things I’d like to make! ;-)
Nice stools Bob.
