'Drift' Stool in ebonised London Plane & Lacewood

About this project

The seat of this stool is ebonised with an iron and vinegar solution, colouring the London Plane timber a silvery grey colour. The front of the seat’s surface is then gouge carved to match the straight rear of the seat.

The frame and legs are constructed with half-joints and strengthened with dowels.  The choice of materials highlighting the contrast between the grey ebonisation and the wilder Lacewood figure of quarter-sawn London Plane.
