Here is a piece I was commissioned to build. It’s a step stool that made from finished plywood. The owner wanted something simple and light colored. I used pocket hole construction, sanded to 320, applied two coats of polyurethane and used contact cement to adhere the non-slip pads. It works well and doesn’t tip over, unlike some of the other designs I have used in the past.

Thanks, It’s not completely my design in the first place. I saw one similar to this one on Amazon. Personally, I think it needed some sort of stain or paint finish.

Great design, yours or not. Looks very useful.

What are the overall dimensions? I’ll be stealing this one.

Great job!

Thank you for all the nice compliments. I’m glad I was able to contribute motivation from such a simplistic design.

I like the simplicity of your step stool. A well thought out design and looks to be very safe and stable to use.
Nice work!
