Clip Tenon Step Stool
This step stool shows all the features you'd expect from a digital fabrication design:
- sustainable material (plywood)
- material-saving cnc-machinable
- flat pack shipping and storage
- tool and glue free assembly
- simple and rock solid
I did three design iterations to get the construction of clip tenons right. Each version gained in stability. The validation was done on scaled down models.
The parts will fit a 350 mm x 600 mm piece of 15 mm baltic birch wood. One version of the drawing is prepared for machining with overcuts for a 5 mm diameter tool.
