Dovetailed step-stool

RATE THIS:

 

This was my first attempt at hand-cut dovetails (after several botched practice attempts using MDF).  The stool is a modified version of a Weekend Project in American Woodworker by Frank Klausz.

It is held together with nothing but three kinds of dovetails - through, sliding, and tapered.  Being uncertain as to how it might turn out, I just used Home Depot poplar for this first attempt.
