Simple step stool with cnc carved rose.

A friend from work wanted a step stool for his 3 year old to be able to brush her teeth at the sink. So he asked me to help with building it. His child likes roses so did a quick pattern and here you go. He loved the piece and hopefully learned at least a little bit of woodworking. Nothing fancy but a fun little build.

I really enjoy being able to envision and design a cnc pattern and within an hour be carving a custom pattern on a wood piece.

Piece is black walnut with three coats of tung oil for the finish.

Simple but beautiful!! I want to make something like this for my daughter. Do you have a plan or dimensions you used that you would be willing to share?

Matt, I eye balled it. No plans. The dimension are 16”x16” by 14” tall. Give me a day or two and I’ll draw up some plans after the fact. It was very simple construction. Pocket screws and butt joints. It was my friend’s first wood working project and he wanted to keep it simple.

Don’t go out of your way for plans! Dimensions are enough to get a good idea of proportions. I showed my wife and she loves your design by the way,

Matt, thanks. I’ll defer on the plans then.

Gents. Thanks. Trying to get my friend into woodworking and this was the perfect project.

Have your say...
