MsOK wanted a couple of step stools, one to use loading her kiln and the other for the house. I finished the second one last night after work and put on a coat of wax this morning. Staples' Dark Brown Paste Wax over Tried and True makes Red Oak sing.
I like both designs and will likely make both again. As the dovetailed stool is the cleaner build it will stay in the house and the other will go to MsOK's studio.
Next up, three side tables by request. As much as I dislike working with Oak, it can look very nice when finished. My guess is at least one of the side tables will be Oak. The other two, maybe light....Sycamore or Country Maple or if I decide to go dark Sapele or Cherry. Or maybe three tables, three woods....light, medium, and dark.
