Awesome figure in that wood, and awesome execution on the design and build. That is a step stool that I would hate to step up on. There would have to be a rule that you could only use it with your shoes off.

One suggestion….If you stand on it on the back of the car, make sure the car isn’t moving.

Keep up the good work!

Wow, a step stool. That is a work of art. I love the display table you have it sitting on. What kind of wax do you use? Ha ha. Love the design and the shine on that birdseye. Nice, nice, nice. Thanks.

Wow, the top is just amazing!

I was thinking that it should really have a seat belt, though, if that is where you are going to mount it. :-)

RobH said, ”There would have to be a rule that you could only use it with your shoes off.” And I’d add, “And don’t forget to dip your toes in some paste wax.”

Beautiful little stool.

Good looking step stool – I really like that piece of maple that you have on the top. Be a shame for anybody to actually stand on it.

This is a nice project and the wood combination works well. I agree with some of the other comments as well- this is much too nice a piece to use as a simple step stool. If that is what you need go and get some construction lumber but this is a nice piece of furniture.

Thanks for the post.

Great design, that birdseye is great. I wish I could find pieces like that at my local dealer.

Hi GMoney;

I missed this when you posted it. I’ve been kind of busy lately, and have fallen behind in both welcoming new lumberjocks and commenting on their projects.

First off, WELCOME.

Secondly, this is a beautiful project. Fantastic choice of woods, and impeccable execution.

Lee
