Here is a step stool I made for my son. I basically flipped through some pictures on Google until I found a style that my son said he liked and went from there.
It’s really a pretty simple design. All of the joinery on the legs as well as the stretcher are half laps. The step stool top is attached with screws through the top stretcher. An accidental bonus on the design was that my son’s name is Anthony, and the legs of the stool look like a capitol letter “A”.
The finish is seal coat of shellac, mixed walnut and pecan stain, and 3 coats of wipe on poly.
He likes it a lot and can now hang up his coat on the coat rack.
