A simple dovetailed step stool, which was one of my early projects. It’s held together by dovetails and a wedged tenon on the front side. it was a lot of fun to build and was inspired by a project my grandfather did for my mom when I was a kid. Now that I’m married and my wife can barely reach the bottom of the kitchen cabinets, I figured it would be a great addition.

Keep the wife happy and the saw dust will fly uninhibited! I made a simple shelf for my wife to put over the sink for her small flowers. You’d have thought I was the greatest woodworker since Jesus. Truth is, I’m still learning how to cut a straight line.

Thanks folks! It was a fun one and actually turned out well, which was a little bit of a surprise! The only problem now is that she used it and doesn’t want me to take it away and apply a nice finish! I’ll have to just sneak it out and apply some shellac since the cure time is pretty short…

Your step stool is beautiful and sturdy. Great work on those well made joints.
