079 Curved Step Stool

I recently saw a curved step stool in a woodworking magazine and really liked the look of the design. It had curved stretchers between the steps and I wanted to make something more utilitarian so this was the result.

I wanted the step stool to curve 90 degrees as you climbed up however I wanted it to collapse so it could take up less of a footprint when it wasn’t in use.

The post that the steps swing on had to be tall enough to provide a hand rail when you climbed to the top. And the steps had to have strong joinery for stability. I designed the steps with dovetails however box (finger) joints would work just as well. I have included templates for all of the risers and treads for your convenience.

This step stool will give you an opportunity to demonstrate both your woodworking and turning skills.
