Default A step stool.

Hi, forum members.

My wife and I are continuously looking for something in the laundry room. Many things are stored in the shelf top of cabinets so we use a chair or a box to climb up to check in these places.
Googleling I found two drawings in PINTEREST. I used surplus material to make a step stool. The original dimensions were converted to SI so, I constantly checked each wooden piece. The final result was nice and I enjoyed a lot.

Nice job, Alexis! The story-telling photos are a big plus also.

Boy, what a stout looking stepstool. You could use it to pull the engine out of your car.

Thanks for posting ,and taking the time to show the step by step construction. Also for converting the dimensions on the drawings, and posting the drawings, in itself was a lot of work.

I would not be afraid to stand on that stool.

good job Alexis

Herb

Your skills keep improving Alexis... very nicely done!!!

A smaller version of that would work nicely for little ones to get up to the sink to wash hands or brush teeth...etc...
