New stool design completed

At long last, a design that visitors to my shop have seen in its unfinished state for many months is finally ready for display. As a sculpted wooden seat, this stool has no equal. A full eight inches deep, the black cherry saddle is painstakingly roughed out, carved and polished to offer unparalleled comfort and beauty. With a nod to art deco design, the curved white ash legs are not turned, but shaped by hand with spoke shave and scraper. Through and wedged tenons attach the legs to the seat. The front stretcher is likewise sculpted to accommodate the feet comfortably while pinned tenons ensure it will never loosen. This stool can be adapted to any counter height and has also proved to be a comfortable perch for guitar playing.
