I made a step stool from scrap cherry for my kid so he can reach the
bathroom sink! Only one major flaw, but it's in the back! :) Should last
a few years I hope.

Terrific design - beautiful wood. He'll probably want it for his kids

I've been thinking about plans for a 2-step stool that you can move
without bending down and picking it up. Something with a long handle
coming up one side that you can use for a bit of balance, and to
maneuver the stool around - maybe casters under the side with the
handle. For some reason I think I thought I might have seen one of
them somewhere. IAE, if anyone has any idea of what I'm talking about
please let me know!
That's really nice. Was a time nice pieces like that were treasured for
generations, hope that can be the case for you.
It's obvious a lot of hard work has gone into your projects. Hope you
get the dovetailer, but it was ingenuous how you got around it, drawers
look nice and joints look neat and sturdy.
I have made several for customers and pricing them in the furniture stores
have found none under $199.00. Shocking IMHO. The stool usually sets
beside a bed, dresser, night stand combo for about $299.00 LOL
How about $5.88 on sale
Slide your mouse over it to see a larger view. How can they sell them that
Made in China no doubt. It illustrates what kind of markup is on other
Chinese stuff that American companies are selling. The average factory
worker in China is making less than $2.00 a day. How many stools can he make
in a day?

How can they sell that cheap? Thats easy, have you looked at the size
of that step stool. It is virtually sized as a 12 in by 12 in cube, and
made out of cheap common pine. That is a toy, not a step stool. Probably
lazor cut out too. Virtually no hand labor other than putting on the

Nice projects. One observation though for what it's worth, I couldn't
help but notice the first step stool in your pictures shows that the
grain of the legs is running horizontilly. This isn't generally a good
idea due to possible splitting of the grain could potentially cause a
fall. (if someone were stepping up oor standing on it.
Something I learned way back in shop class and I didn't heed till I
learned the hard way.
