Easy to build, very sturdy, and extremely practical — this project has the whole package.
When set up, this step stool is solid as a rock. The upper rail of the tall front frame provides a convenient hand-hold to steady yourself as you step up to reach for the item you’re after. Once you’re safely back to floor level, the stool can be quickly and easily folded into a compact profile to store in a handy location. The clincher is that the stool goes together in a snap. There are no tricky “mechanics” to deal with. Solid, straightforward joinery and some common hardware are the basic ingredients. And we guarantee this useful project will earn its keep for years to come.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
