Saw this project on here and immediately knew this was something I needed to build for my daughter who had been standing on toys to reach her light switch as she is now enjoying turning on and off the lights in her room. Took some creative license and made the treads out of multiple boards rather than the single 6" piece from the plan. Also use pocket hole joinery to add to the stability of the project. This is very sturdy and can hold well over 200lbs. Already have many orders from friends.
