Woodworking Plans Available For This Project


The Amish step-stool is the ideal tool to reach those items that are too high in the kitchen. This is the most popular item that I manufacture.

When folded, the stool measures 15″L x 15″W x 24″ H.

Weight 16 lbs

Disclaimer: The step stool has only two steps. For your own safety, the top should only be used as a seat, it is not a step and should not be used as such.

The step-stool is handcrafted from 3/4″ inch solid hardwood, with the choice of oak or maple wood that is stained and finished with three coats of polyurethane to provide a durable wear resistant surface. I can custom stain a piece to match your particular requirements.

The stool in the photo directly above and below is made from oak and stained a Pecan color. I handcraft these unique stools in my workshop and brand each one with my personal signature.


When not being used to gain height, the two steps can be conveniently stored away, and the stool functions as a comfortable kitchen seat.


The Amish step-stool in action and being used to reach those items stored high in many modern kitchen cabinets.


Made from solid hardwood Maple, this stool is finished in a two tone stain colour that adds dimension to the piece. The outside is a Pecan colour and the interior is a Macchiato chocolate color. The stool is finished with the usual three coats of polyurethane and poses a dramatic effect to any home.


This stool is also made from Maple and stained with a dark water based stain with low VOC’s, or volatile organic compounds, then finished with a poly-acrylic topcoat. Which means it is safe. The Espresso stain is definitely dark roast!


This stool is stained with a low VOC water based product in a Cypress green color with a black wash and clear coat finish
