Minimalist meditation stools
in Scotland…

On my travel to Scotland visiting Jamie, Shirley and all the lads I had decided to give my self a little challenge to work at in the workshop.
Meditation stools, minimalist version – light weight, easy for transport – yes and hopefully beautiful.

This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/42558


Pictures:
1. Minimalist meditation stool.
2. Ash versions.
3. Light weight and collapsible.
4. First prototype.
5. Rough shaping.
6. Work in progress.

Thank you for a wonderful time in Scotland Jamie.

_Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Best thoughts,

MaFe

When I first saw these they reminded me of something but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
Butterflies?
Maple seeds?
Propellers?
Some strange bird?
No, it came to me finally that they seem to resemble an elegantly designed glider, a light, nimble flying machine, possibly human powered.

And so they are, powered by the mind and able to take the flyer to places never before visited.

Only Mads could be behind this concept.

So you my friend, so you.

You actually got it Paul, I was thinking of Maple seeds as I was shaping it.
Not trying to make it look like them, just the feel of floating in the air.

As Paul said, so you! I’m not so sure this would be for me because once I got down, I would have to figure out a way to get back up. LOL

Again, wonderful Mads and remarkable that you could take a simple thing like that and design it to be so beautiful as well as functional.

Beautiful, my friend. The blog is wonderful. The details of the sliding dovetail and the ‘buttons’ just take it to the Mads level. Thank you for sharing.
