Hancock Step Stool - unassembled and unfinished kit
Step stools provide easy access to the tall chests of drawers and built-in cupboards seen in every Shaker village. Three steps make this one particularly practical. It is a duplicate of one made at the Hancock, Massachusetts Shaker community in the 19th century. The original is now in the collection of the Shaker Museum and Library in Old Chatham, New York.
We make the Hancock Step Stool in clear Eastern white pine. Height is 24". Width 17 1/4". Depth 14 1/4". Steps are each 4 1/2" deep. Shown painted green, like the original.
This item is an unassembled and unfinished kit. All physical components to make this as a project are included along with instructions, however, you will be required to provide the necessary sandpaper, glue, and finish--as well as be reasonably comfortable with your own skills to obtain a satisfactory result.
