Nice step stool! Its great to see another one made and shared with the forum.. Did you end up using hand tools throughout most of the project? planing, chiseling, sawing?
FYI. I'm starting to put out some feelers and lining up some guys for a Colorado 207 gathering. Dates haven't been finalized but I think we what we have lined up is pretty good.. Covering saw sharpening, going over the teeth layout/set for rip saws, crosscut saws, dovetails saws.. etc... I think he'll also go over making your own enclosed saw handles..
If any other local 207 lurkers/members are interested in joining us feel free to PM me..
