After my retirement I needed something to occupy my time. As a retired plastics engineer, I decided to follow along the lines into woodworking. After setting up shop, which I am still working on, I tackled a step stool that my wife has asked for many times(saves me from getting off the couch from football game watching to reach something for her in the kitchen).
I made the steps from our oak hardwood floor leftovers. The sides and supports are from poplar. Finished with teak oil and polished with Liberon wax.
I can now stay focused on the game and let my wife do the climbing(she is happy and isn’t that what it’s all about!).
