The Shakers typically had in their homes floor-to-ceiling built-in-the-wall cabinets which required use of a step stool. Not all shelves received continual use; however, shelves which were rarely used did have items stored on them. Using these shelves required the use of a step stool. These step stools could range from a simple step stool to a more elaborate step stool with dovetails, half-moon or scalloped sides, and storage compartments within the stool. Colonial Sense is provided you plans for two step stools. The first stool pattern does not use any dovetail joints. The boards are simply nailed together with either regular or small square nails. The second step stool was made in Canterbury, New Hampshire in the 1800's and is designed as both a step stool and a storage compartment.
