The fifth leg was the initial inspiration for this storytelling stool made from coppiced hazel. The split "crotch" branch evoked a pair of jeans which with the addition of a hand carved hazel cowboy boot and a blue stain became the fourth and fifth leg of the stool. The woven top was hand woven from a mixture of rush, grasses and dyed straw to reflect the prairie lands of the cowboy.
