Solid Oak Bed Step

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Solid Oak Bed StepMy wife has a friend who is slightly vertically challenged and she asked if I could make her a step stool to use for getting into bed. I looked through my wood stash and found some of the left over oak 1×6 material that had been salvaged out of some old church pews and used in a table build a couple of years ago. This is what I came up with. 10” wide x 20” long and 12” tall. The legs have a 1” taper. The stretchers are glued to the legs and backed up with dowels. The top/step is glued and backed up with pocket hole screws. Finished with a couple of wipe on coats of Verathane cognac stain. I had hoped it would finish darker but she seemed pleased with it so the color will have to do. It passed the fat man weight test with flying colors so should have a safety factor of at least 5 for normal sized folks.. lol
