This is the step stool I made for my Granddaughter Ellie. I want to thank Ryan Sparreboom http://lumberjocks.com/projects/47843 for posting his step stools and providing me with some assistance. It is made with mahogany and hickory. The name is inlayed with poplar. I finished it with a coat of tung oil and three coats of wipe on poly. Ellie loves to use it to help grandma cook.

I especially like the inlay, a skill I do not have. Yet.

John,

Great stool. You have some very lucky Grand kids to have a Grandpa like yourself…. How did you do the inlay of the name?

Thanks Everyone for the comments. You are all very gracious.

Max; I did the inlay with a router and inlay bit and adaptor. I think I picked it up from Rockler. It took a little getting used to but after several tests I was able to get it pretty good.
