I built this little stool so that our dog could use it to boost herself up onto our bed. The bed is quite high. The puppy got big and pushes me out if we let her up. The stool is now in my wife’s closet. The joinery turned out cool. Dowel joints at the end grain and a long grain miter, glue and clamps. Linseed oil and beeswax finish. Made of maple. It was fun to make.

wood accent in grain makes it stand out. Nice and crisp.

Looks fabulous! How did you secure the joints? Dowels or splines or….. ?

The leg to stretcher is with a pr of dowels. The miter is just glued long grain to long grain. I glued the leg to stretcher first them made a jig to hold the leg/stretcher and cut the miter half on the table saw. then just glued them together. Thank you all for your interest and kind word. It is a little piece but it was fun.
