Earlier this week I dismantled the mattress I found prior to my bandsaw scoop project and was left with a nice supply of poplar. I decided to re-make an old step stool that I originally made in December of 2012. It’s a useful utilitiarian project so using beat up reclaimed wood is perfect for it. I also have a free set of plans for those who are interested.

Video covering the build:
