some of these foot stools, used while sitting, were quite diminutive. this one is a naturally dark, open grained wood from recycled drawer sides. i’m not sure of the exact kind of wood. finish is blo and wax. cut nails, and pocket pocket screw construction.

This is an interesting and unique piece. You are right about it being diminutive. Without the pencil for reference I wouldn’t have had any idea about the size.

Thanks for the post.

I like that little stool. Any child would love it, claim it, keep it. Whether that child is 6 or 66. Really nice.
Thanks.

Nice pencle holder. Just kidding. You did a good job and a nice finish. I love pocket screw construction
