It’s amazing how much quicker a project goes when you don’t stain it. This bathroom stool is made of cabinet grade plywood scraps joined via pocket screws and PVA Glue. The photos are pretty telling of the simplistic design. The only new thing attempted on this project was using a “bow and string” to lay out the stretcher arcs. I’ve normally used thin wood and bent it to the desired arc. The bow sped things up considerably. It is made up of a thin strip of cherry and a nylon drawstring from some old pants.
The stool was primed and painted white. My wife wanted white so that she could do some stenciling in the future on it. Hannah (3) and Jacob (15 months) seem to like being able to reach the sink knobs. A bit safer than them leaning from the toilet as they attempt to do all the time.
