Step Stool

Step Stool photo The nice feature about our step stool is that it’s ready to go at a moment’s notice. Instead of folding up, the step slides in and out of the base in a track in the base of the stool. Pins and stop blocks prevent the step from coming all the way out of the base.

We used solid oak, which gives it strength and enough weight that it doesn't skitter across the kitchen floor when you step on it.

This project was first published in Woodsmith No. 111.

CONSTRUCTION: The Step Stool is 16" high x 16-3/4" wide x 14" deep with through mortise and tenon joinery.
