Classic Cherry Step Stool

With its solid construction and practical design, this project is sure to be the most useful piece of furniture in the house.

No matter what your height, we all could use a little assistance when it comes to reaching high objects around the house. The first thing you’ll probably notice about this stool is the tapered sides that are splayed at the bottom. If you’ve ever stepped too close to the edge on a step stool that has straight sides, then the advantage of having a wide footprint is obvious. This small detail gives our step stool a rock-solid foundation. All of these angles and tapers may appear intimidating. However, this step stool is designed so that most of the cuts can be made at the table saw with just a couple of simple jigs.
