Here’s one that I’ll give away at our next Ladies Night Clinic. I work at the big orange box and make most of the door prizes we give away each month.

The center board for the top of this one came from a piece of 100 year old oak that someone gave me when they disassembeled an old barn after her grandfather had passed. The outter pieces are some pecan that I scored when someone I work with lost an old pecan tree in a storm two years ago.

The finish is about eight coats of Tung oil

I like the idea of a wider step stool/seat. It seems like it would be more steady, at least in one dimension. Well done!

Yep, the first stool I made (I posted a pic of it on here somewhere) had straight legs that were actually 1” narrower than the top. It was a bit too tipsy for my liking. So subsequent models all have the legs splayed wider then the length of the top and I also make them WIDER than the top so someone wont be as liable to tip if they stand at the edge.
