This three-legged back stool is based on Chris Schwarz’s design in The Anarchist’s Design book. I turned the 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 by 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!

This summer was a wild one for me, and I had to move my entire shop twice. I am settled now and have my new shop set up, though I may need to sell the bandsaw. Such is life. Here are some images of my new space.
