This step stool was a test in patience and designing on the fly. I don’t tend to make detailed plans when I make a woodworking project. I like to have a basic concept, maybe some final dimensions, but other than that I dive right into a project and build as a go. I love how the step stool turned out. The cherry wood is gorgeous and has a ton of figure that doesn’t come across in the video. The design is simple, but works perfectly. If you are interested in making a piece of furniture at home then consider making a stool. They are a great gateway project into furniture making.

This stool is inspired by the Scandinavian Skagerak Noboru stool. It’s a beautiful piece of furniture.
