Vanity Step Stool

Just recently finished this Vanity Step Stool for some good friends, they have two small children.
This (lightweight) stool has different sized steps depending on which way you turn it.
Set it down one way you have steps of 6 ½” & 12 ½” Set it down the other way you have steps of 9 ½” & 14 ¼” -it was also made narrow enough to fit inside the bathroom vanity cabinet so it can be stored out of the way when not in use.
Hopefully this will work well for growing & different sized children.

Cherry, Oak, & and a few Black Walnut strips 5/16” x 3/4” x 12” -cut a shallow rabbit in each end to receive the 3/4” plywood. Also ran the the two outside long edges of strips through a round-over bit & sanded before glue-up.

Finished with Wipe on Poly.

Thanks for taking a look!

Very nice looking Nick. Great idea you have there with the versatility of two step sizes. Also nice it fits in the cabinet. Well done.

Really nice. Added sophistication to a step stool.
