Hey Lumberjocks,
The kitchen helper was a request from my daughter. It’s fully adjustable, the picture shows the step at the second highest level. The kitchen helper is made from all hardwoods – all but one piece of Walnut are drops and leftover woods from other projects. There is Oak, Walnut, Rosewood and Purple Heart used on this project with an application of Linseed Oil. That’s it – no poly. Design-wise all the weight is in the bottom of the stepper and it’s a pretty stable aspect ratio. Quinn can now help Mom and Dad prepping food for dinner. Got to give Marc Spags some design and inspirational credit on this project. I know the platform is a touch big on this piece – but I hope the twins will be working together up there next spring.
Thanks for checking out the kitchen helper.

getting help doesn’t always mean getting help – but it is a learning experience
