I built this shaker step stool following plans from Fine Woodworking’s website (http://www.finewoodworking.com/PlansAndProjects/PlansAndProjectsPDF.aspx?id=31925).

It was a really fun project that was quick to build, used very little wood, and provided a lot of practice at hand cutting dovetails and accurate layout. I’m planning to build another soon, probably in walnut or possibly cherry.

It’s made of maple and finished with Watco Danish Oil + Deft satin spray lacquer.

Beautiful. Straight and square. The arches finish it off to a tee. Nice one.

Nice job, that came out looking great. Kudos on the hand cut joinery, everything looks solid and precise. I think Tommy Mac did this one on an episode of Rough Cut once, too. Nice chisels, I have the same ones :)
