This project was to replace the other step stool I built. My wife when I started my wood shop asked that the first project be a step stool so my little girls could reach cups and my four year old (three at the time) could wash her hands. The first stool was to narrow and ended up with several falls therefore was retired to my shop( you can see it in the third picture ).
The stool is out of 3/4 AC plywood and stained green. I decided to use screws to fasten the top to the legs mainly because I could hide the screws with the cushion.

I flipped flopped back and forth on the cushion and how to fasten it, after reading a post on a blog for the step stool from Rick and talking to Amanda this is the end product thank you to both.

yes Silviu there is a rabbit in my workshop it is my wife’s flemish giant names Bella. Building the cage for her which is 6’ tall 6’ across and 3’ deep was the initial reason I started into wood working. I don’t have it on here because of the fact that it was before the shop. Here are some pics of the rabbit.
