My wife and I are attending a baby shower this weekend, and as usual are bringing a homemade gift.
I’ve posted these before so I’ll spare the construction details.
The top is 2 layers of 3/4 BB, legs are 1-1/4” oak dowels set at a 12 degree angle and wedged in.
Finish is Minwax “natural” stain topped with a few coats of spray-on Spar urethane.
Having learned a lesson from my own kids’ stool, I found a great non-skid pad that screws on to the legs. I will be using them on all these in the future.

Nice simple thing. I’m sure the kids like it.
