I made 3 of these step stools for Christmas gifts two are pine with maple pivot dowel’s and one is all cherry.

I stained the two pine stools using Minwax Early America stain. The finnish is a water base Poly. The Cherry stool has no stain just a water base poly on it.

The gal’s love them! I got the plans from Mac here on lumberjocks. You can get the plans on his page.
Thanks again Mac! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/52684.

I don’t have a material list of my own. I did a search for you and found this site. I hope it helps you. It’s not exactly the same as the one I built but maybe you can get a rough idea of what you need to make one.

Also, I have a few YouTube video’s that may help.
