This step stool was made in the Wahoo High School wood class. It was made of cherry wood, I used a CNC router machine to cut the American flag, and my name. I did the American Flag because I love my country and I thought putting my name where the stars would be was a pretty unique design. It was coated in Water-based Polycrylic to give it a nice protective coat.

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.

Very nice! I really like the flag you carved into the top, especially at a time when the displayed love of this country by so many continues to deteriorate.
