This was an angled view of the stepstool. I used oak wood and built it at the Wahoo High School. It was assembled first by using the biscuit joiner to situate the wood so I could glue together, second I used the radial arm saw to cut out the wood so i could make my top even, third I glued it all together (but not one at a time though. I had to glue my top and my legs first before i could assemble it together.) Well i was done gluing my top and my legs together, now its time to put my sides on it, but first before I could pit the screws in at an angle, I had to put holes in it which thats when the creg jig comes in handy. I put the holes in at an angle and ta da now I was ready to put the screws in now, but first had had to get the glue in place for my sides. After my sides were in place for the glue, I set the screws in the hole, and i used a drill to get them in there tight to where it doesnt break. Well now my sides are done so now its time to go stain it. I used pecan stain to stain it up and then after i was done staining, I had to put 4 coats of polyurethane gloss to make it look all nice, but after i was done with each coat i had to sand it to get all the bubbles out of it. After you do all of that, then you will have a stepstool just like this.
