Most of them are, but it’s such a nice day here, it felt better. Put a few coats of spray-on Minwax fast drying poly on the prototype step stool while it was still unassembled and then went and grabbed some lunch at a nearby foodie place. There’s quite a few in the area you wouldn’t even know they exist if you weren’t looking. Kind of makes you think they’re trying to keep them a secret for just the young hipsters that occupy many of the artsy community shops that abound around here. I’m an old guy, well maybe older guy lol, but I have no fear of the unknown so I seek out where all of this stuff is hiding. Hope I don’t scare the little critters LOL

Picked up a delicious rosemary focaccia sandwich with prosciutto, manchego, tomatoes and a pesto sauce, then headed back to the shop to eat my sandwich and wait for the stool components to dry.

I made a few dowels to pin the stool together, and then assembled it.

Here it is, finished and assembled. It has a few extra patches as I was working without plans. Just had to make some assumptions on dimensions and go from there.

This version will become my shop stool for getting to the upper reaches of the lumber rack. I like it, but after making this, I know what I do and don’t like about it. The changes will be reflected in the one I’ll make for Christine from some cherry I picked up.

All in all a good day, a good sandwich and a completed project of sorts. :)
