Workshop . Three Legged Stool

Photos in the workshop of one of a pair of three legged post oak stools.  Still in a very raw – and experimental state.

The busy bench top.

The bend and splay and stance of the legs.

Laying out for the black walnut rungs.

    1. Yaakov,
      The curve at the base of the legs was bent while the oak was still green. The rest of the curves and twists in the legs is natural. The tree I cut has kind of wrested control from me over the design of this chair. The question is: does the tree know what it is doing?

    1. Alan, I do hope they turn out to your satisfaction. There is no doubt that it has taken turns that I hadn’t planned on. This tree has a lot of personality, and has insisted on it being known.
