The finished item is a real pleasure, especially after all the hard work ! The project provided huge learning outcomes, not only from all the angles, but also from the carved seat and the bent back rest. Only thing left to do now is to make time to sit !!
The design of the stool originated from a book written in the 1970's and was presented with scant information relating to the structure etc. So Alan set out his own drawings scale 1:1. That was really helpful in measuring the angles required for the joints.
This stool of many angles is made using the best of our Wicklow Beech. Alan has patiently worked his way through all of the compound angled joints required to finish this demanding project. Each joint is a through mortice and tenon which offers that unique exposed joinery look !! The seat has been carved and then carefully sanded to remove any little chisel marks. The stool has been finished with 3 coats of Osmo organic high build satin oil / wax and this provides a really durable smooth and silky finish.
