My grandson had his second birthday last week. I made him the stool pictured above, with his name carved in the top (see Snippet #6). I made the other stool as a gift for a good friend's granddaughter. These stools are my own design. I made two of them over 20 years ago. One was a gift for my nephew (he still has it). We kept the other one and it is now known as "Marlene's bean-picking stool." She used it one year to sit on while picking green beans and it has been utilized in the garden ever since. I've also used it as a mini workbench a couple of times. So it's worn and beaten, but as solid and functional as the day it was made.
