I made this for my daughter this week so that she’d be able to climb up to the sink and wash her hands all by herself. Nothing complicated here, the wood is oak and I cut the sides and supports to a 5 degree angle so that it would be more than just a straight stool. At some point my daughter was “practicing” before I stained it and something on her fingers reacted with the wood and turned it a purplish black color in the shape of tiny hands/fingers on the top step. I thought I sanded it all out but it showed up again when I stained it. Live and learn I guess.

I think it’s awesome that her tiny hands showed up!
