This is my step stool I made for my grandma. The wood is barn wood and I think it’s ash. All the joints are though mortise and tenon joinery that are all wedge with darker wood. I used the plans from finewoodworking.
Thanks for looking!!

That’s amazing! I built one nearly identical 15 years ago in 9th grade!

Mine has a different top profile, and no through tenons, but very close otherwise.

Great job!
Mine is made out of pine and still standing, so I think it’ll be around for a while.

Another really nice project. It looks sturdy and is still really attractive. :)

Again, nice work. The split tennons are a great touch.
