My wife asked for a step stool while carrying our second son. I was working on a toybox for the older boy at the same time so needless to say I didn’t finish on time. It’s also a more money than brains project. The top is ash and the sides are Brazilian cherry. I wanted to work with something other than home center pine so I went crazy. I also purchased a plug cutting set to make the plugs to hide the screw heads. I finished it with a few coats of acrylic gloss.

Very nice! Our stool is still in use 20 years after first getting it. Well worth the nicer materials!

Neato! I really like the Brazilian Cherry. I sell a good number of floors in such but have not got a source for it in any other form. Thanks for sharing.
