I had a little bit of time some I thought I would build my wife a step stool for the kitchen, after all she is only 5' tall.
I started with a small Poplar board that I had lying around and cut the steps and sides to finished length.
One of the boards had a crack on the end that I needed to deal with. I decided on a standard bow tie but with a curve on the ends.
The next step was to hand cut the dovetails and then glue the 2 pin boards together.
I needed to add a stretcher in the back to help keep the stool from splitting apart when you stand on it.
Before I was done with construction a new studio lighting kit that I had ordered came in the mail and I was eager to check it out!
Put 2 coats of Danish oil on and she is ready for delivery.
