I am relatively new to woodworking. I have only done two projects so far, a rocking horse for my son and rebuilt a set of built in bookcases. Next I want to build a step stool for my son. I have looked through a lot of designs and I want to build one similar to this . I really like the idea of the folding step. However, if possible I want to build it with no screws or other mechanical fasteners. I have been running a lot of ideas through my head, but I have just not been able to figure it all out.
Is there a good/reasonable way to attach the steps to the stool with wood joints and not screws?
I am also working with a limited set of tools. I do not have any ways to mill lumber to size so everything I use will have to be pre-milled from Lowes/Home Depot or Rockler.
Appreciate any advice.
