I made this step stool in my high school shop class. My step stool is made of African Mahogany for the sides, and Cherry for the top and legs. I used a CNC design; On the top I put a Husker logo and my last name. It also said, “Grow a little (Then you won’t have to use this)”. I carved the words with a CNC Router. I glued my wood with biscuit joints. I also added a water-based Polycrylic Gloss. This is my first ever wood project, So please give me feedback and ways I can improve my skills.

Your Step Stool Looks great. I remember making one when my oldest daughter had a pair of twins and I made a stool for them.

Be proud of your stool and welcome to the “World of Woodworking”. I’ve been doing it for about 60 years.

Good clean CNC work on a great piece. The engraving is funny.

That’s a nice looking step stool. As a new woodworker, keep your projects simple. And learn how to use every tool in the shop. The more you use them, the better you will get.

Nice work! I the job you did matching the woods. Did you cut the half circle by hand or by machine?

Rbeck,

You are the first of your class to ask for feed back. I find that interesting and a little brave. I will ask you this. What could you have done better? Having asked that, I think your top is very well done.

My first shop teacher would take a pensile to every imperfection (usually I did not sand out machine marks) the kind of things my untrained eye could not see.

I hope you enjoyed making something. It’s like a super power these days.

Thanks for posting

-- Petey

I cut the semicircle by a band saw.

Have your say...
