THREE-LEGGED STOOLS

Stools are fascinating. Function is key: on a chair-height stool much of your weight can be on your feet, so the seat can be made smaller, for perching;  these, in elm, are higher, for sitting at a kitchen island, so need a full size seat for proper sitting. After roughing out, the sculpted seats need careful considered work with spokeshave, rasp, scraper and a critical eye to get them just right.
