This is my first completely “Hand Tool Only” project, its a step stool I made for my wife for Christmas. Its dovetailed maple with bloodwood accents. If you were wondering blood sucks to work with, its very dense and brittle. If you inspect the stool closely you’ll find gaps and other imperfections everywhere but over all I’m pretty happy with it. Enjoy!

Looks great to me! Anyone fusses about imperfections just doesn’t understand HAND craftsmanship. I’m sure you have a good mallet around to smack them with. hehe…

Well done!
