These Shaker Step Stool Plans Have a Handle!

We have built more of these Shaker step stools than any other, and continue to get requests for them. The handle serves two purposes: it allows you to easily move the step stool without bending down; and it helps to stabilize you as you are stepping up!

These free wood project plans are a little more difficult than our other step stool plans, but with our photos and diagrams, YOU can build them! Click on the photo to go straight to these Kreg plans.

NOTE:
The Start With Free Woodworking Plans are comprehensive! You will find step-by-step instructions, illustrated by many photos, and a pdf of each free wood working plan done in Google SketchUp. Once you build one of the woodworking projects we have designed for the pocket screw jig, you will come back again and again.

These Step Stool Plans are a Classic Shaker Style!


The plans for this 3-step Shaker style step stool were modified so that you can make them very easily with the Kreg pocket hole system. Our first version did not work as well as we had hoped, so we modified the plans again. We want to be sure that you can have success with every one of our free simple woodworking projects.

This wood working project would be a great gift for a family with young children. You may need to make one for the bathroom and one for the kitchen.
