Completed in 1988. This piece accompanies the Bates rocking chair. The footstool is made of walnut. This is straight from Woodsmith. The legs were cut on the band saw and then spoke-shaved and rasped to final shape. My daughter has this piece of furniture as well.

Thanks, Woodsmith issue 43 takes you through the amazing process of shaping these legs. You actually glue the cut-off from the first side back on before making the cut on the adjacent face. The designer had a good eye for proportion.
