For this woodworking project, Jesse AKA “The Samurai Carpenter,” challenged me to make his through tenon step stool… as many of you know, this is not a typical joinery project for me, so it actually was a challenge to build. The wood that I used for this step stool was rough-cut hard maple, and spalting that I got from a sawmill. It was a very stringy wood, that didn’t cut or chisel very easily, and you’ll notice that I try to cut the joinery for this project a few different ways. It turns out that the drilled hole was the way to go! I didn’t follow the plans exactly, as I prefer a more primitive look. I hope that you enjoy this joinery challenge from The Samurai Carpenter.
