Here is a link to the detailed plan. I don’t have a router, so made all the round cuts with the jigsaw.
Good luck

A child’s step stool is one of the most precious heirlooms there is. I have one my Grandfather made for my Dad in about 1917, which I eventually refinished for my eldest, I have one my Father-in-law made for my Wife in the 60’s and now I have the one I made for my youngest. All to be passed on and on. . .

What did you use to finish the wood? Did you use any poly? Is it slippery for bathroom use?

No, it is not slippery at all. I used polyurethane finish. It works great!!!
