Here’s a little step stool i made for my 18 month old son.
Its made of curly maple with a few spots of spalting throughout. It was my first project with all hand cut joinery including my first set of real project dovetails. The finish on it is a series of transfast dyes sealed with amber shellac and a top coat of arm-r-seal.
Its far from perfect but it should hold up to the abuses of a young boy. The lil guy approves.
