In our warehouse there are some shelves that are just out of reach when they are full, so I made a step stool.
I wanted something light,strong,safe, and portable. After looking at many other ideas this is what i came up with, there are no plans for this, I made it up as I laid it out on plywood.

Very nice and very functional. You should take the time to draw up a set of plans. I know I would like a set.

Looks great! I built a 3 step version years ago, crude screws and cleats construction. Painted the handle safety orange cause it gets used all over my cabinet shop and I never know where it has been left.

Like the added handle and support. One very sturdy and helpful stool. Well done!
