very nicely crafted and finished. Your daughter would love it. Soon, you have to probably make one more for the younger child.

Nice work! Walnut is a very beautiful wood. I like living in a place where I can find it as inexpensive as other wood.It might be smart to let your wife use the step stool. She might okay other Walnut purchases.

Love the joinery. Would love to see some intermediate stage photos before the pieces were joined.

Nice work Dan. I’ve been building those for quite a few years and often give them away to little kids when I attend a show (with the parents’ approval, of course). They are always a big hit. Your interpretation is spot on.

I like this a lot. Do the tenons and mortises just run in an ‘L’ shape or is there something more to the joint?

Love the stool and your mini blog even more.I can totally relate to your wood-related nervousness.I’m even more pathetic in that regard… plywood gets me in tatters because I don’t have a vehicle big enough to get it easily, so I am forced to find other ways or buy several sheets when I happen to have a friend with a truck around.

Very nice work. I have some walnut laying around and trying to decide what to do with it. I’m curious about the leg joinery as well. Can you share a bit more about what you did?

Cool stool. I feel you on having 2 kids and not having any money to blow. I’m in the same situation. I have never used walnut either and I’m sure I will be just as scared as you after having spent a considerable sum on nice wood.

Wow. Again, thanks for the nice words everybody! For those that have questions, I am planning on sending you a message with some links to some resources that go into some detail on the leg joints. One great resource is Mr. Scott Morrison who commented above. I’m a big fan of what he does and it feels great to have him comment on my humble little project.

Dan – that’s an incredible stool. It looks really basic at first glance. That awesome wood selection and incredible joinery make it first class and remarkable. Very nicely done.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
