A nursing stool for my daughter and new grandchild. It helps the nursing mother raise up her knees to the correct height to support the baby in her arms as she nurses. Shamelessly copied one that the hospital had in her room. Made with black walnut left over from her crib that I built. Also gave me an excuse to use my CNC router to do fluting and the letter on the top. The sides are only held on with screws with the concept that some point they can be replaced with straight legs and used as a booster stool in the bathroom for the little one. I’ve seen the convertible ones but they seem a little complex and this one only has 5 pieces and I knocked it out in an afternoon.

Wow, that’s really nice. I bet my wife would have liked something like that not too long ago.. but I think those days are behind us now! The monogram came out great – makes me want to play with your toys!

I like the thinking-ahead to a conversion in the future.
