Whether you are a beginning woodworker or a seasoned veteran, this classic step stool is designed to put your skills on display. Dovetail joinery, curved stretchers, and tapered sides give the piece flare, and all the joinery is visible. For beginners, a pair of dividers and a simple guide block put perfect dovetails within reach. For veterans, the classic lines are perfect for showcasing your hand-tool skills. Step-by-step assembly makes it all come together.

Tommy MacDonald's finish recipe is available for this project.
