My take on the ibuildit.ca step stool. This was a fun and deceptively challenging little project.

Here is a shot that shows the 3 degree splay on the sides.

Dry fit of the stretchers.
Trying to figure out the spacing for the dovetail on the step.
After using some scrap to make several test cuts I was able to successfully cut the dovetails in the steps.
Had to fix a couple knots on the underside of the step.
Black Starbond jumps in for the quick fix.
Applied three coats of Arm-R-Seal satin.
