My first LJ project!
Two-step stool, solid maple (all dimensional lumber from Lowe’s), pocket screw + glue consutrction. All edges are rounded over, as it’s intended for children’s use. It will be painted by someone else.
Tools used with miter saw, band saw, oscillating sander, router table, and random orbital sander.
Question for you guys, did I use too many pocket screws? It looks like alot, but I don’t see any I could get rid of without making it potentially weaker or more wobbly down the road. The glue was just a very thin bead to try and prevent creaking after a few years in a bathroom.
This is actually the second one I made, the first generated requests for more, so I took the trouble of making plans and fine-tuning measurements, which was time well spent, as this one went together much easier and tighter than the previous one.
