There are few things worse than a wobbly stool, so before we thought about how rustic, hearty, and elegant they would look, we figured out how to build these to be sturdy and stay that way for as long as you own them.
Originally a commission and custom design for a guy whose songs you hear on the radio, they've become one of our most asked about designs.
Craftsmanship: The tops are built like a hard maple butcher block, so you actually could use them as a cutting board. (Just because you can doesn't mean you should.) We hand select the legs, use a draw knife to clean them up and pare them down a bit, and then cut them to size. Before we hammer the leg into the seat, a slit is cut in the top of the leg, and once they're together, we force a wedge into that slit. This construction increases the grip of the joint, and helps ensure that the more you sit on it, the tighter the joints in the stool become.
Height: At 24", they're designed for seating at most counters, but since they're made to order, if you'd like them a little taller or shorter, leave a note on your order, and we'll gladly adjust.
