2x10 Step Stool

Submitted by msyoung22 on Fri, 08/19/2016 - 14:14

With some left over scrap 2x10 wood I made this stool for my children.

The total heigh of the stool is 9" (7 1\2" for the feet, 1 1\2" for the top, and 1\2" for the design on top made from scrap pallat wood)

The top is 1 1\2" x 9 1\4" x 16" (because of the thickness of the wood I would recommend cutting the top to 18" instead of 16")

The legs are cut with a 5 degree angle

I made the design on the top by ripping some reclaimed pallet wood into 1" strips and then cutting each into 2" pieces
