In recent years this Georgian Foot Stool with four different leg treatments has become a classic, although optional, project at The North Bennet Street School. I chose to make mine from some beautiful South American mahogany finished with potassium dichromate, shellac, and wax. I’ve done just a little carving before this project, and never the acanthus leaves or shell patterns seen on this. There is a ton of learning that takes place on this project and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Upholstered in the traditional manner with webbing, burlap, horse hair, muslin, cotton, batik, and top fabric.
