So I have been lurking in the background for a few years learning quite a bit. I decided to join to provide some reviews on equipment that might interest people and post some of my few (and amateur) projects. Against that background I offer up the first project of my post-7th grade woodworking era. It was made when all the tools I had were a circular saw (Ryobi and not too bad) and a drill (Ryobi and actually pretty good). I can say this project has stood the test of time. I built it five years ago for my son who has used it every day since to reach the kitchen counter to interact, eat, and (now) cook. The design is simple. I bought three stair treads from Home Depot. Two became the sides and one was cut to make the steps. Under the steps support blocks were screwed and glued (I think) in. Easy, sturdy, and ultra-functional.
