I made this step stool in my high school shop class. It’s made out of Hickory wood and we used a CNC Router to carve the words on the top. Before we glued it together, we used a pocket hole cutter so we could glue biscuit joints in the slots to hold the pieces together better. We screwed all our pieces together and put a polycrylic gloss finish on it to keep it looking nice.

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.

Solid stepstool. Good clean lines. Great work and I really like the choice of Hickory. It’ll be around for generations!
