I remember being little, watching and helping my dad and my grandpa make wooden stepup stools. We had stepup stools in every room. I have one in my room right now , that my geriatric cat uses to get up on the bed. And down in the kitchen, is a heavy-duty one, made by my grandfather.
Now you can own one as well. My dad is manufacturing them (no, really he is, in his workshop on the family compound, not outsourced somewhere) and my sister wyckhurst is selling them.
I'm 6'3" and I still use mine. You need one, trust me.
