Back Stool

This three-legged back stool is based on Chris Schwarz’s design in The Anarchist’s Design book. I turned┬áthe legs and spindles rather than making them octagonal. Legs, spindles, and crest all come from the same log, which I split green, turned, dried and then cut tenons into. The seat is maple lumber topped with an oak plank split ┬áby another piece from the same log as the component parts. Pyrography decoration added to the crest. Left somewhat rough to the feel for a sort of country feel, then finished with hand-rubbed oil finish. Built like a tank and comfortable to boot!

New Guitar

My latest Guitar. Guitar #10. Tele-style with a 25″ scale length, 22 frets. All wood used in this guitar was either maple or walnut. The body is a maple core sandwiched between a walnut top and bottom. Hand finished. Neck shaped entirely by hand. It has a smooth, easy playing style and sounds great for blues and rock. Each pickup is individually switched on or off for four different configurations, including both pickups turned off to mute the guitar. String through and neck-through design for the ultimate sustain.
