Kitchen Baby Platform

My daughter loves to be part of the action; her biggest frustration by far is being too short to help in the kitchen and not being able to see what we’re working on on the counter.
A friend of mine built a great looking step stool with railing for his daughter.  I decided to make something similar.
I came across this great little step up platform made from a cheap ikea step stool.:
So I started with the same stool; the BEKVÄM Kitchen stool from Ikea.

I sketched up a base and stop in my cad software and had my CNC router (My DIY CNC Machine) cut it out.
I had the cnc machine route out pockets for the vertical pieces; and I cut a 1/4″ top which is beveled to hide the screws.

This video has lots of shots of cutting out the parts;
It turned out pretty good and it was my first useful project using my CNC machine 🙂
