I am somewhat challenged when it comes to reaching high shelves and the like, owing to being what is technically known as a shortarse.

For that reason, I made this little footstool out of some very raggedy bits of gnarly, knotty oak off-cuts.

It's about 300mm (12") tall, so not too high to easily step up on to, but high enough to get me within reach of the top shelves in the kitchen.

It's pictured here on the hearth, in the warm, so that its coat of linseed oil will cure within my lifetime. The weather is starting to cool down a bit now, and out in my workshop the oil would probably take about three days to go off.

I really should do something about cleaning up that hearth a bit too.
