C.2 I need a steppy-stool
D. I want Bilbo's
I was drawing up sketches last night, knowing I had seen this little guy somewhere, but unsure of the where part. And then I remembered - The Hobbit!! My knowledge of seating and step construction being minimal compared to tables, I wasn't entirely sure how it would bear weight. Didn't look up the finer points of wood seating and steps because it was late and I really should have been asleep.
|(sketches - bottom right in box is Bilbo's. roughly.)|
I figured the steps would have to constructed in some sort of tongue and groove fashion. I'm not so terribly concerned with making and exact copy as I am with just liking the design of the piece. And being in need of a steppy stool for reaching the high places in my kitchen and climbing into bed. I'd probably make it out of poplar or maple. Poplar if I decided to paint, and maple because I really don't like the look of oak.
Who do I know with a router or dado blade on their table saw.....
