Here is a step stool I made for my son. I found a picture of a similar one online and said to myself “I can make that!”
It is made from Quarter Sawn White Oak. The finish is a wipe on poly gel that I purchased from Rockler. I made a template for the sides and used my router to cut the matching pieces. I did not yet have a good dado set so I had to use my router to made the grooves to support the step. I reinforced the joint with countersunk screws and titebond III glue. Then I cut tapered plugs from the leftover scrap. It is really solid, and I really like the finish. I also helped my father in-law build one for my nephew.
