I made a step stool. I made this in high school woods class. I used hickory. I cut a softball and my name using a CNC Router. The router bits used are pocket hole and biscuit joint. The finish that I used was the Water-Based Polycrylic Gloss.

I think you left out the most important part…......that doesn’t look like stain. You torched the stool correct?
Either way, it looks great!

I like the way you did the CNC carving after the shou sugi ban type wood burn. It really makes the carving stand out. Great work!

The top is really good, overall good workmanship and a great stool. Hope you got an A+ for the class.
