    Reg, That looks great. I assume that it's a step stool? Did you hand cut the dovetails? What kind of wood is it?

    Thanks guys. Some times life just gets in the way but I have been busy woodworking to calm the nerves.
    The wood is cherry Darren. Yes it is a step stool. My wife is verticaly chalenged 5'2" so thought I might give her a hand. No the dovetails are done with a jig.
    Heres what kept me up late more than a few nights

    Its good to see some friendly faces Vaughn. I'll be around a bit more now

    The stool is great. What kind of jig did you use? The dovetails look well balanced. It is really well done.
    My wife is the same height and we have a similar style stool (not even close to the quality of yours). The handle is really nice to have - no bending!

    Great step stool, but isn't that a bit elaborate a frame for your compressor?
