Every home needs a wooden step stool to help get to those out-of-reach places. When you need to change a light bulb or reach an item from an upper cabinet, just use this convenient, light weight stool. When not needed as a stool, it can substitute as a small bench to hold potted plants, etc. Tole painting your own design can add a personal touch to the finish of your step stool.

By Charley Fell. When I was reviewing the Miller Dowel system, I needed a simple project to try it on. I got the idea to make this step stool from the Miller Dowel leaflet itself and you can not get a project any simpler to make than this. It can be made in less than a weekend and only requires a basic tool kit.
Sewing steps provide a foot-rest for someone sewing by hand in a seated position. It is also an easy project that uses less than 2 board feet of hardwood.
