When I was reviewing the Miller Dowel system, I needed a simple project to try it on. I got the idea to make this step stool from the Miller Dowel leaflet itself and you can’t get a project any simpler to make than this. It can be made in less than a weekend and only requires a basic tool kit.
I chose pine as that’s what I had in the workshop and I used the walnut dowels as I feel the contrasting timbers give a great effect. To read the Miller Dowel review and to find out where to buy it click here…
I marked the centres on the two end pieces and the stretcher, then clamped the pieces together, making sure the center marks were aligned and used two scrap pieces the same length as the stretcher to give support while clamping.
With the drill holes marked I then drilled the dowel holes with the Miller ‘TruFit’ drill bit taking care to drill straight..
