The Shakers used step stools such as this one to get in and out of their feather beds and high chests of drawers. This step is an adaptation from one built at Hancock Shaker Village during the 19th century. We have scaled it lower to make it more stable.
The step is completely made with hand-cut dovetails. We use not routers or jigs to make these joints - just chisels and handsaws.
This is an extremely useful piece of furniture. In fact you will wonder how you got along without it. Try it in your home for 30 days and if you don't agree with us, return it for a full refund. Great in the kitchen, library, or bath. Light enough to be extremely portable. Use it as a home for your house plants. This makes a great gift, and is one of most popular items we sell.
