Need to catch up.

Built this stool so my granddaughter could reach the sink to brush her teeth and wash her hands. Made from Ambrosia Maple, glued and screwed with Paduak plugs. Sanded to 400 and waxed. I believe it was a little over 14” tall.

I have one very similar (walnut/oak) for my daughters that they use all the time.

This looks great and I am sure she will love the freedom it helps her to gain at the sink.

Nice. It would be handy for short wives too. (Glad my wife doesn’t read LJ!)

The cut-out shaping work really stands out.
That’ll be cherished for a long time after she grows up.

Hey Scott where is the drip pan? My grandkids had more water on the floor and countertop than on their face and hands. Enjoy that grandaughter while you can, turn around once and she will be grown and sharing her hugs with someone other than grandpa. Great job.
