This is a bench\stepping stool I made based on one like this I had as a kid. It is made from blood wood and quarter sawn oak. I originally made it to try and sell but then I got the opportunity to donate something for a charity so I picked this.

Awesome I had one like this as a kid too. I fixed it up and now my granddaughter is using it.

Great colour combo and a very rugged simple build. I like that if you’re going to use screws, make em stand out!
Are there plans available for this or did you design it from memory?

Thanks! Sorry, no plans. My mom still had the one from when I was a kid so I borrowed it to build this one.

Have your say...
