Here’s a new stool design I’ve been working on. 24″ tall and cut from an english walnut stump.In the words of Owen Wilson, “Not too bad considering I carved it from one piece of wood.” (Meet the Fockers). Enjoy your weekend, friends!
I came across this monolithic slab of walnut half buried in the mud at a local mill. It was soaking wet, completely weathered, and had some bug issues. The slab was 7″ thick, but I had to remove a full inch in order to clean it up and flatten it.
I used reclaimed douglas fir blocks for the base, and finished them with an ebonizing process.
The coffee table finished out at 60″ long, 18″ wide, and 15″ hi.

I am putting the finishing touches on this custom upholstered Half Moon bench. It ships out the end of this week to a designer in New York. When I told her we could customize the upholstery she had this Pierre Frey linen sent from Paris. This is by far the most colorful Half Moon bench I have done yet. Below are a couple of shots of the reclaimed oak bench base in process.
