Reclaimed Wood Stool
I’ve been working on this for a while. It’s gone through three iterations, and then the long process of finishing it. The base is Douglas Fir 4×4’s and 4×6’s (even with hidden nails that killed my jointer blades.) The top is White Oak with Claro Walnut tenons. The finish on the bottom is a dark shellac in 4 coats, and the top is finished with Polysure, an Eco-friendly polyurethane. I worked with the natural irregularities and rough surfaces of the wood to develop the asymmetric design. The different woods and finishes create contrasts that are carried into the varying organic and angular lines.
