Child display stand

You may think this is an ordinary step stool but what you don’t realize is that as soon as the camera comes out to take pictures to post on Lumberjocks it INSTANTLY transforms into a child display stand. Children can pose and stand on display on this step stool in ALL SORTS of different manners. I just wish I could include pictures of all the uses for this versatile stool.

I made this step stool for a friend who has a very narrow bathroom and was having trouble opening the door to the bathroom while her children were at the sink. I made it slightly narrower to accommodate the swinging door. I had a GREAT time learning how to drill the holes with a pocket hole jig. The was a great little afternoon project and really fun for my two kids as well.

Stool looks good. I like the different colored plugs you used. They really work as accents.

Your helpers are awesome. You’re doing yourself and them a huge favor involving them in your projects.

I too, like the pocket hole effect w/ plugs. I like to see how our Ljs meet the needs of children.

Great idea.

I prefer to put on at least three or more coats of mud, red strawberry Jello, peanut butter, Kool-aid, or my personal fav… chocolate – marshmallow sticky stuff on my kids before placing them onto the stand for display. But that’s just me. Then I hand them back to their parents to take home. (I told them repeatedly when THEY were young and unruly that being a grandparent would be MY revenge….)

Takara, that is a wonderful little bench and has a lot of character. The little one looks like he really loves it. Nice work.

Great bonding time with the kids and a great looking bench too. Like the design especially with contrasting plugs.
