Oak Footstool. Heart cutouts and Hand Hold



My sister-in-law has a hard time getting up into the kitchen cabinets and other out of reach areas of the house. I made this Stool to make things easier for her. I used red oak cut, shaped and sanded with Ryobi Power tools and router bits. In addition I added decorative woodburn vine designs to the top.

The Finish was with Minwax Provincial Stain the Minwax Wipe on Polyurethane. 4 coats with fine sanding (Ryobi Corner Cat 220 grit)and steel wool (000 grit)in between applications.
