Just a step stool in Curly Yellow Birch. This board had spectacular figure, and I thought this project would be great at displaying it.
As with all my work, no sandpaper was harmed in the making of this project! :)

I never thought a step stool could look so good. Great looking wood and nice tight dovetails.

Impressive bench. Since no sandpaper was harmed, I’m assuming you used scrapers the whole way? I just bought a set and haven’t tried them out yet… maybe I’ll have to fire em up.

I do use scrapers a bit, but mostly surface with handplanes. Only on occasion do I find the need for a scraper, and yellow birch (even figured) yielded very nicely to the plane.

You certainly did justice to the beautiful wood.
