I purchased some nice Flame Maple and Black Walnut and decided to build a step stool. Will be using the rest for a table top…The dovetails are hand made and the light and dark contrast well together.

Walnut and maple work so well together. A stool fit for a king!

Why did you lay out the dovetails like that instead of the traditional half pin at the end?

Super stool! Like the wood combo, great color contrast and the dovetails are awesome.
