So my oldest was in the process of being potty trained and we went and bought him one of the step stool toilet seat cover combo things at the store. Well I discovered that he stool didn’t help him reach the sink to wash his hands. So I went out and made a taller one. I used just some scrap stuff that was laying around. First I made the steps out of 2×4’s. I made the risers out of 2×6’s and the back out of a 2×12. I didn’t own a biscuit cutter at the time so I just glued them together then screwed a thin stip of wood across the bottom to hold it together. After that I made the sides out of some ply wood. I traced out the shape with the stairs then cut it out on the bandsaw. I then glued and nailed the sides to the steps. I then filled and sanded it covered up my screw holes with plug covers and painted it. It is a tough little stool and works perfect my oldest can reach the faucets with ease and my youngest just like to stand on them and talk.
