Step Stool

Step Stool 
Step StoolYou may not remember when you looked up at the sink, or when you climbed up to the potty – but if you’d had a few extra inches on your legs, things would have been so much easier. This stool can do that for youngsters – and help you clean out your scrap bin, too.

Step StoolThis column generally begins with a trip to buy lumber, but you probably have the needed material – scraps – floating around your shop. This especially holds true i f you pa int this piece instead of go all wacknutty with ?gured maple like I did. But if you need wood, simply head off to the store with your cut sheet in hand.

On this project, you can cut the pieces to size at the beginning of the build (most times it’s better to cut to length and width as you need the parts in case things change). Once the parts are cut, the majority of the work is on the sides; they get laid out, drilled and shaped. Find and mark the locations for the holes prior to any shaping work and make sure you have mirrored layout images. Keeping the drill square to the workpiece, bore the two 3?4"-diameter holes and one 1?4" diameter hole in both sides.

Step StoolNext, align the bottom edges of the two sides then lay out the centered arched cut out. To do that, set your compass at 21?2" then ? nd the location where the compass hits the marks along the bottom edge (33?4" from the outside edges) and 11?4" of height at the center – the compass point rests on the opposing workpiece when drawing the arch.

Step StoolThe photo below shows how to lay out the side’s curved shape. Clamp a workpiece to your bench, clamp a thin strip of wood to the bench just in front of the workpiece then bend that strip to the 27?8" layout  mark along the top edge to get a pleasing  shape. The radius of the line should be around 93?4". With the strip bent to position, transfer the line to your side with a pencil. Use your jigsaw to cut close to the line and ?nish smoothing the curve with a rasp and sandpaper. This is the only time that you’ll need to use this setup. The remaining layouts are transferred from this one curve.

A Choice of Power Tools
Step StoolAlign the sides to transfer the layout from the ?rst side workpiece to the second side, then ?ip the shaped side and repe at to add the second curve to second side. There’sone curve yet to add, but that comes after you shape the second side. You could use a jigsaw to cut the curve to the ?nal dimension, but a router with a pattern bit installed does the job in a ?ash then, rasp cleanup isn’t necessary
nd ?nal sanding is minimal. (For more information on using a router, refer to the updated “ICDT” manual.) Use a jigsaw to rough-cut and stay about 1?8" from the layout line. (This allows the bit to cut exactly to the line.) Fit the sanded curve to the rough sawn curve, clamp the pieces to your bench so the clamps are out of the path of the router’s base as the cut is made, and you’re ready. Adjust the router bit so the bearing rides along the sanded curve while the bit’s cutting length is aligned to remove waste material. Make the cut moving the router from left to right , or with the direction the router bit is spinning. After routing the curve, ?ip the top board and repeat the steps to complete the work on that side. Switch the sides then lay out, rough-cut and rout the remaining curved edge. The sides are complete after a bit of sanding.
