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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
