Stool Zero is an idea based on a nice piece of wood.
It’s a piece of redwood burl 19 x 9 x 2 3/4. I think it would polish up lovely so mentally I designed a stool for which this could be a seat.
I even designed the joining methods and built test joints to evaluate them.
I did not have a very clear vision though of the best way to attach the top of the legs into the seat or if the cross braces were sufficient or if I had the skill to execute the project – this was early, February of 2013.
Not wanting to screw up with such a nice piece I decided that some tests were in order
