Hearth Stools are a line of one-of-a-kind numbered stools. These stools explore the interaction of wood's wily nature with the constraints of form and smooth, touchable presentation. The seats are generally from one large chunk that is split down the middle and book-matched. The legs are attached with a wedged tenon all the way through the seat and the leg-tops can be seen peeking through. They are finished with oil and shellac padded on by hand, with an additional coat of polyurethane on the seat for durability. They have gripping feet for stability. They are finely wrought woodwork at a more reasonable price than typical furniture pieces of their caliber. Your Made-to-Order stool will be part of the numbered series.
The stools are a comfortable sitting height for an average adult, a little shorter than a dining room chair. They are sturdy to sit on, but easily moved around.
Hearth Stools are pictured here in Walnut, Spalted Maple and Oak. Also currently available are Salvaged Douglas Fir and Urban Harvest Cherry. The seat and legs can be different species if desired.
Standard height is 17", though they can vary from 16-19" tall, depending on particular chunk of wood. I can make them from 14-25" tall so if the height you'd like isn't listed as an option, please contact me.
