Hand Tools Archive
Joe in a Cleveland suburb
It's not much, but I did it with hand tools. Cherry. I put a light coat of BLO on it, but need to finish it yet.
My wife needed a stool to get into our bed - the mattress is really high. I loosely based this on some pictures of stools I've seen in my various Shaker books and an article in FWW C. Becksvoort did of a step stool. That's where I got the idea to wedge the tenons.
Anyway, I made a mock up from foam board and proudly presented it to my wife accidentally as a "stool sample" instead of example.
Thanks for looking.
