So a couple months ago I needed to make a step stool for my son. It needed to be big enough for him to reach the kitchen sink.
I searched around on the internets and found the design that Tommy Mac aka T-Chisel aka the new host of the Roughcut show on PBS. He had done a “forum build” a couple years ago with a bunch of people making the step stool. He had a few podcasts about it that I did watch.
I had also been given a gift certificate to a local lumber store for my birthday. I splurged on an expensive (>$100) figured walnut board.
So I broke out my dovetail saw and chisels and went to work.
I started with a wash coat of shellac. Then a little bit of danish oil. Then a few more coats of shellac, then topped off with a bunch of sprayed on coats of water based lacquer. A little paste wax topper and she was ready for pictures.
I have a feeling you’ll see a few more of these in the future.
