this was created for a specific purpose. I needed a narrow step stool for our bathroom. It also had to be three year old proof.

Step 1: Making the legs

I wanted this to be simple but with a twist. making the legs round seemed to be both. There are 9 that are 1 1/2" diameter by 6 1/2", 14 1/2", & 22 1/2". 3 of each. all of these were done with 2X4 ripped in half. I used scrap stuff but one stud new would make all of them plus the tiered leg. If you don't have 1X4, glue two 2X4's.

This is beautiful work! When your daughter grows older, it can be used as a small shelving unit for toiletries, books, magazines, and "multi-purpose paper". And if you have a family with younger cousins, you may have them using this - and their parents wanting one as well.

Great step stool! Do you know of a way to make one for an adult? I made a loft bed for myself but I need steps not a ladder to climb up. Any help would be greatly appreciated

That is very clever and looks nice. I instantly thought dog step for our bed.

This is so clever and it looks great!
