We’ve just come back from our ‘summer vacation’ yesterday. This year we chose to travel inside instead of outside. Probably the best spent vacation ever. I could write pretty much about this journey… To say the least we came back rejuvenated, combed minded, I’d say. :-) I think I’ll post at least part of my new approach to my woodworking journey later.
Well I’d been fully aware of my physical inflexibility, so I had googled for some options to survive about one hundred hours of sitting in ten days. I found a photo of people meditating on two-legged stools. I liked that. Then I found Mafe’s stool. “Well, only one leg, that’s even simpler. Good. :-)” – I thought. So I made one. At the first glance my wife liked it, so even though it was the last evening before the course, I made one for her as well because it only took two hours (from opening the workshop door to closing it) to make a stool like this from rough sawn lumber.
The seats are steamed burly red willow. I love this lumber. Both are from the same board. My stool has spruce leg, my wife’s has cherry – both had been cutoffs.
AllWoodJoinery as usual. The seat plops off the two 20mm beech dowels for easier portability.
-- What are those few hours of mine compared to those decades Mother Nature has put in it!
