We recently learned that we will become instant grand parents when our daughter maries a fellow with two adorable kids. Being 5 and 3 they want to help with everything – even the dishes (can you imagine that?) They are also a bit short on stature so our daughter asked if we had any stools that they could use. We have one that I had previously made for my wife so we pulled it out and it worked well for the 5 year old but the little buy just couldn’t quite make it above the counter to help.
So I got busy and designed a 2-step step stool that is portable and that can be used as 2 stools or as one double step. Keeping safety in mind I build them so when used together they have a positive latch so that if the little one climbs onto it they won’t slide apart. I used popular and clear urethane finish.
