This was my third gift for our churches silent auction. A two step stool made out of scrap oak, a project that I had built before. This time I built it from scrap wood a former student who works at a airplane interior company gives me free. The sizes vary 2 1/2” X 40” X 1 1/4” thick. So everything I build with this wood is a glue up. Using scrap wood means you learn a lot about properly using your power tools (Jointer & Planer) along with proper clamping techniques to make lasting projects. The wood is a treasure to me.

The plans for this project came from Woodsmith Magazine, they give detailed plans and cut diagrams for the novice and advanced woodworker. I fit somewhere in the middle. I have a friend Boxguy who has no need for plans, just works them out as he goes along, he’s real good.

Thanks for your time, Take Care, Joe

Very nice. I really like the lines of that 2 step stool. What are approximate dimensions? And did you add any rails under the steps for support?
