I built this step stool to make it easier for my granddaughter to reach the toilette. The back is cut to fit closer, without a gap. Hand cut dovetails on Elm and a water poly finish.

Other than the fact that such beautiful hand-cut dovetails don’t belong adjacent to a toilet, I have to say that this is absolutely wonderful! A very nice job on the stool (which is probably what you’ll be telling the little potty-trainee).

Here I thought you needed potty training at your age.LOL
Nice job on the stool, I thought the dovetails were a nice touch.
Good luck with the potty training I’m sure the little one will enjoy using it.

A great step stool and you might be able to use it later in life to bend over and tie your shoes.

Great job.

I see you trashed the plastic one from IKEA behind the toilet. I need to do this same project, then light that IKEA one on fire. I am sick of all the IKEA stuff we’ve accumulated since before I was into woodworking. Excellent stool, looks awesome and is probably 1000% more sturdy than the plastic thing from IKEA.
