This is the step stool I designed and built in shop class. I chose walnut because I thought it looked good and it is very heavy duty. After I cut my pieces to size and routed the sides it was time to stain my projects. I decided to use Antique Cherry because it just gave the wood a darker look...
I made this step stool with cherry wood in woods class, I did not stain the wood. I used the rounded edge for the routing process of the project. I used tung oil for finish. I had a little bit of trouble sanding the wood down.
So I made this butterfly inlay step stool earlier in the summer.
I bought wood to make a second stool at the same time. Well after much frustration, both with the inlay and with the finish, I'm finally done with it.
The wood is goncala alves, sometimes known as tiger wood. It's really heavy...
I made this stool in my Woods class. It is made of African Mahogany, with a half circle leg design, a rounded router bit. It doesn't have any stain on it because I didn't have time time to add it. The type of finish i used is Gloss Tung Oil.
just finished a shaker step for the grandkids to wash their hands int he bathroom. Made from cherry, with danish oil finish. all hand tools were used for the process… quite rewarding I must say
