I was asked by Razan Brooker, owner of Interior Touches in Boston, to make a larger version of kitchen/work stool that I usually make. Pictured below is the new stool with the original in the foreground.
The new seat is 16 1/2" by 10 1/4" and the original is 14 1/2" by 8 1/4". The original is designed as a stool that I use at my work bench. It is narrow enough to straddle and to put one foot on the floor for some leverage while hand planing or chiseling. The original also works well as a kitchen bar stool but this new larger design is very nice. The larger seat gives more support for longer sitting times.
In order to make the new design work, the legs were also made a bit larger.
|Above is the new design alone. Without the original in the same picture, it is hard to tell which is which.|
You can see the original Kitchen/ Work Stool on my website. Here.
Enjoy the warm weather,
