This stool is made of Curly Maple and Pua Rosa. The joinery I used was dowels. Finished with the process that the Wood Whisper called pop goes the maple. You can see the chatoyance that the oil finish brings. . Mark can even help you improve your vocabulary. Thanks for looking Will

That really speaks to me for some reason. I may have to steal your idea for my own home.

Will, I have to agree with Bryan on this one. I have a daughter that just went off to college and she asked me to make her a step stool and I believe this is right for her. Hope you dont mind me using your design. But my guess is it will put a smile on her face :) .

Thanks for the comments. Making a step stool is a fun project. I made the the design simple and let the wood selection do the talking. I will be looking to see what you come up with Gary.

Will,
Very nice. I really like the contrasting woods. I may make one similar – and use wormy/ambrosia maple for the light wood. Not sure yet what to use for the darker.

VaOak,
Walnut goes realy nice with maple. I made a small bench which I used walnut for the legs and maple for the top that I had posted. Thanks for the comment and looking forward to see what you do.

Have your say...
