Build this on request from my daughter, my grandson didn’t seem to like his plastic stool as it was to flimsy.

This stool was made with Baltic birch plywood, the top is 16”w x 10” deep, it is about 7 1/2 inches high, the sides are splayed out at a 10 degree angle.

The design is my own after obsessing over the various plans that I scrounged from the internet. I liked the semi-circle cut outs on some, the splayed sides on others, the hand-hole on the top and pocket hole joinery made it a faster build.

I really like the look of Baltic birch, finished with a clear or semi transparent finish but my daughter wanted it white.

Really sturdy!

That’s a classic. Everybody should have a few of them. Somewhat to my shame, I have to admit that I have bought about 8 of the $6 plastic ones from Dollar General and still haven’t made one from wood.

That is one nice stool. I guess you grow your toddlers big in Canada. :-)
