16th Century Oak Stool

The latest in the stool series, this one is made of American Red Oak, taken from land in southern Minnesota.

It was worked with hand tools for everything except for the turnings, those I did on a power lathe.

All of the stock preparation,  joinery and carving was done by hand.

The notable differences between this stool and the pair of pine stools is the legs do not splay out and there is more carving all over the stool.

I struggled a little to take a picture of it, the side on is not the most attractive pose.  The low relief carving looks best is strong day light so that you can see the interplay of the light and shadow on the piece.
