Here’s a little stool I made for the kitchen – mainly for my girlfriend who can’t reach the top shelves…
Fairly simple design using through mortise and tenons. I made it from some reclaimed oak taken from a friends fireplace mantle they were tearing out. This is my first time using this type of joint in a project. They turned out reasonably well if not a little looser that I would have liked. But I’m pretty happy with the end result. It’s very stable and just the right height.
Finish is a cherry stain with a few coats of wipe-on poly. I might do a fine sanding and recoat then wax, but I think it’s probably fine how it is. It’s just a step stool after all :)
Thanks for looking!
