This is a step stool I made from some really rough construction grade plywood. I needed a step stool for the shop and even more I needed to get rid of some old plywood I have laying around getting in my way. The plywood was so rough I only sanded to 100 grit and gave it a coat of BLO/varnish mix and called it good. Once in a while it is fun to slap something together quickly that is functional and let the aesthetics slide. I won’t care if it gets paint slopped on it or if it gets treated roughly, cost was about zero.

Looks sturdy and functional, can’t ask for more. :)
Added to faves; I need to make a few of these.
