Thanks to SKONE for the inspiration. My third grandchild is due in March so I made this for my daughter-in-law. It is all oak and pocket screws. No glue was used so I finished everything before assembly. The finish is wipe-on poly. The top is 12×14 and it stands 7 1/2 inches tall. There are 3 positions: horizontal, 15 degrees and 30 degrees. I’m delivering it this weekend. Hope the Mom likes it.

Great looking stool! It’s always nice to have somthing handy to reach the hard to get to places.
Congratulations on your 3rd Grandchild!

Nice work, your daughter in law should appricate the thought you put into her comfort

Okay, by the name I am guessing this is a footstool that somehow helps a mother hold a certain position while nursing?

I would say that yes, that is what it does. Having watched my wife nurse our four kids over the years, she often preferred a recliner or something with a footstool. Made it easier to hold the baby comfortably while nursing.

Great looking build. I really like it. Even though we’re beyond that…(youngest is 11 now) I may build one for my wife to use as she cross-stitches, uses her laptop, reads….just seems like it would offer a variety of ways to alter one’s position and be comfortable.

Have you got a pattern for this? I have made some before but they were not adjustable. That’s a feature that would extend it’s use as a booster for the little ones at the bathroom sink and such.

That is a great project. I’m sure that it will be much appreciated.
