It’s been a while since I posted the last project…. It’s not because I wasn’t woodworking, (actually I have been doing almost everyday!) but just didn’t have a chance to post them…

Anyway, here is some high stools for “singer songwriters”!

I will be participating in an group exhibition in 15 days now, and I am also singing in a concert there so there stools and the guitar stand, and the music stand will be used/shown in both of them.

The seats are black walnut, and the legs are pine. about 27.5 inches high.

I am also making some more projects, and will bring some other stuff I have already made, to the exhibition. But this will be my first time showing/selling woodworking projects, and looking forward to seeing how others think about my projects, what will be sold and what are not.


こちらおよそ一ヶ月ほど前に作っていた「弾き語りスツール」でございます。
構想はだいぶん前からあったのですが、なかなか取りかかれずにいたものの一つ。
高さはおよそ70cm、だいたいバーカウンターとかにあるイスと同じくらいでしょうか。座面と下の貫はブラックウォルナット。脚はパインです。

仕事柄、色んなステージで、色んなイスに座って演奏しますが、楽器や機材などと違って、本番当日になってから「あー、ええのがないなぁ」とよく言われるのがこのイスです。無ければ無いで、立って演奏すればいいんですが、なにぶん僕は結構背が高いので、バックで演奏をするときには目立ちすぎるのもナンですし。。。
かといって、普通のパイプイスを出されると「困ったなぁ」となってしまったりします。

今回の「不思議なお部屋展2」では演奏もしますし、これはいい機会ということで、背の高いイスを作ってみたわけです。

Junji, these are beautiful. I have been wanting to make a pair of these too. You have inspired me to put this project higher on my que. Nice joinery.

I am new to woodworking and don’t always see the obvious. How do you make round tenons? The stools are beautiful. Thank you for posting and good luck with the exhibition.

Very nice stools and good joinery. Selection of wood is perfect. People will certainly like your products and they will sale like hot cake.

MickeyD,

Pine is really soft and it’s so easy to make a round tenon with it. Many people here may use lathe, but I don’t have one, so I just use a knife and chisel. Draw lines where you want it to be cut, and just cut little by little. It’s much easier than you think.

“like hot cake”! Wow, that would be perfect! But they must be sold while it’s hot?
