This stool was made from some wood I had laying around the shop. The design was inspired by some stools that I’ve seen on LumberJocks. The base is made from some Brazilian cherry flooring that I picked up over a year ago from a local used building materials store. The step tops are made from some bird’s eye maple that I had left over from making my son’s crib. The base uses half lap joints and the stringers are attached by mortise and tenon joints. The lower step has several recessed screws with plugged holes. The top step is also attached to the base in this way. The stool is finished with spray-on satin Deft lacquer. As you can see in the pictures, my son likes the rubber feet and enjoys using it as a picnic table.
