I designed this kitchen bar stool because I often find the need to reach higher cabinets or shelves
in the kitchen. The back of this stool acts as a step ladder and is canted at 14 degrees. Inspiration
came from a tripod gardening ladder, often used for picking apples. The stool is made from black
walnut and ash. The walnut seat is hand shaped using a scorp (inshave), spokeshave, drawknife and
travisher. The outside shape of the seat was roughed out on a bandsaw. The foot rest is a lamination of six pieces of 1/8” thick ash . I bent them around a form using epoxy and 21 clamps.The seat has a tenon on the back which was mortised into the back ash rail using a router.All the rungs are ash and have eased edges influenced by G&G . The finish is Waterlox original.
