This is a traditional empire stool which was designed for travel on long journeys. We’ve used reclaimed spruce planks, complete with scratches, and drill marks plugged with ash dowels. There are no nails or screws, in fact no metal is used in the design. The seat is pegged to the frame with hemlock dowels. A cubby connects the frame and adds lateral support. Hand grips are ground out on the underside of the seat. The finish is polyurethane. No stain is used.
These chairs are great accents in a hall or bedroom and can often be found with a few clothes or jackets resting on top.
The finished size is 21″x15″ and stands 18″ tall. #07-29-18 Click on images to expand.
