With the shortness of the legs and thickness of the wood, wood grain would not be an issue.mdntrdr said:
I disagree. If the grain ran vertically the force of the load would want to split the legs at the apex of the v-notch where the bolts are.mdntrdr said:
I see what you're getting at.mdntrdr said::smile:
The traction material is not inset, it's just play sand "glued" on with the spar poly finish....That's a cool little step stool. I like how you inset the traction material (or is it on the surface?). Nice coloring too.
No comment on the leg grain orientation :shifty:
Oh, ok. Cool. I thought, too, that it may have been made of the sandpaper-like grip/tread tape. It's hard to tell from the picture. It's looks great and you made the tread yourself. Awesome!The traction material is not inset, it's just play sand "glued" on with the spar poly finish....
