Like me, my daughter in law is short, so I made her a stool to reach the top kitchen cabinets. It is 12” high 10” wide and 15” long. The wood is maple and the plugs are walnut to cover the screws, (I have not tried mortise and tennon yet), finished with tung oil.

Nice step stool! I really like the finish and the contrast of the plugs.

Hi Ron,

This is a nice stool. The walnut plugs add a nice detail to the stool. This is both a pretty project and a useful tool. Thanks for the post.

Very nice job——the choice of wood is great – curious to the size wood you chose?

Bill, the thickness started at 6/4. I planned it down a little, it is heavy.
