This step stool was made with red oak. I used the band saw to cut out the W for the legs, i used two different pieces of wood cut out one half of the W on one side and the other half on the other piece of wood, then glued them together. I used a router bit to make a design on the top, and another bit to round the legs. I put together my step stool with glue and pocket hole joints. I used a water based finish, Vermont Maple, then i put on “all water base Polyurithane” “semi-gloss” to finish my project.

Very nicely done project. Good proportions and the leg shapes look just right to me. Little stools like this are unbelievably handy, not the least for getting into that cookie jar in the top cabinet, lol.
