Stool (and bench) samples
This coming week promises to be a busy one. We’ve swiftly moved from lessons in sharpening and joinery to drafting our first project. The resulting piece, due on Friday(!), will be a bench or footstool depending on our chosen dimensions. I’ve personally opted to construct a footstool with slightly tapered legs out of white oak. Oak is a beautiful wood with a rich history of use particularly in the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century. Once quarter sawn, the wood shows distinct white flecks or “rays” where the tree once transmitted its sap.
Now I’m off to bed before the big week ahead…
