Continuing on the same theme – here’s a quick sketch of a small step stool made from 4 chunks of wood. The initial idea was to make it as simple as possible: a base, a support and two steps.
At the bottom you can see a curved piece to ease the transition from the base to the support. I’m playing with the idea of easing each of the transitions – really “rounding over” the whole thing to make it very fluid.
The support is 45 degrees to the steps. The size is maybe 12″ high x 12″ wide x 6″ deep steps (12″ deep total). A nice cube.
