When my wife reaches for things in high places she uses a chair or and ordinary stool. I thought that that is disaster ready to happen since we are not that young anymore. So, I built her this step stool. It’s 16.5 in. high, 16 in, wide, 9.5 in. deep when step is folded in, and 18 in. with step is down. Material is 3/4 in. plyboard and the step is hinged to the main body. It is fairly stable and easy to move around.

Jiri, I failed to mention that the design is not original. I used the plan provided by with some modifications. Thanks anyway.
