The wife (YiaYia) is to short to reach the top shelf and grand daughter is to short to mix brownie dough at the counter, so I was tasked to come up with a remedy that would boost their stature and be easy to move around. Here is what I came up with using some left over soft maple lying around from a previous project. All pieces were dadoed and glued together (no screws or nails). Environmental surfaces were radiused with 1/4” bit and top coated with a couple coats of varathane. It’s not exactly heirloom quality, but it should do the job (I hope).
