As I was moving around, backing up and discarding some of my older .jpegs last night I came across this picture of a stool that I had made years ago from all recycled and scrap wood. It was actually the first piece of furniture I had ever attempted.

The 18” (45cm) tall foot stool consists of red oak from an old pallet, catalpa and walnut with a padauk and ivory inlay.

Hi Rick,
It’s a interesting piece, almost architectural I feel.
Nice work.
Best thoughts,

Wow! I love modern design in wood… we just never see much of it.
This is a beauty.

Thanks Ellen and Mads.

I agree Mads, about the architectural feeling. As my inspiration was from the paintings of the Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian during his middle and late career, it is possible.

This style has been referred to as abstract geometric painting, and some of his later titles ie, ’Broadway Boogie Woogie’, ’New York City 1’, ’Place de la Concorde’, ’Trafalgar Square’, etc., hint at the geometry of city streets which tie in with the architectural aspects of a metropolitan center.
