Triangular Stool
« on: February 24, 2012, 07:17:13 AM »
Finished this today, the frame is made from Ash (legs) & Hazel (stretchers & caps), the table top is made from split seasoned Ash, that has then been worked with a draw knife & cabinet scrapers to achieve a smooth finish.





I left gaps between the planks to accentuate the "rustic feel" and also left some of the bark on the edges of the planks so people could see it was made from timber gathered from the Forest rather than bought from somewhere like B&Q.

I know being round wood with the pith in the legs will most likely crack on the ends, that's exactly the effect im hoping to achieve as that will, in my view, just add character to the Stool/Table/Stand

Beautiful work. Love the combination of the Ash and Hazel, nice subtle contrast.

I agree with the rustic look. If I made a stool it would only have three legs especially if it was going in the bush. I hate rocking 4 leggers.

Really like this one! Maybe a little more than the woven one. How long did it take to build?

cheers chaps.

@ pW - probably took me about 4 hours in total, although that was over two days.

Nice! I'd like to see how you did the tenons for the seat supports to the uprights. Looks great!
