Here is a step stool I built for my son Emerick. Wood was saved from being tossed in the dumpster at work. 1/2” red oak which made the stool fairly light weight, even a two year old can move it around on his own. Dovetail joinery. I tend to personalize a lot of gifts I give by carving the recipients name to the piece. He sure enjoys his new stool and keeps mom and dad on their toes with all the new territory he can explore now.

-- Peace be with you!

Very nicely made and the carving looks excellent too. I’m sure your little boy will get a lot of use out of it. Those cookie jars can be hard to reach!

This is a great stool and he certainly looks like he appreciates it.

Great job on that well made stool. Like the joinery and the name carving. Looks like he’s having fun using it.

Have your say...
