a couple more shots from Woodwright’s school last week…
Bill ended up turning all four of his stiles on this lathe. His stool had carved rails, turned stiles and a one-board seat. He took it home for assembly.
The alternative to turned stiles was chamfered stiles, and most went with that option. here’s some in progress:
In making these stools, I always go through several test assemblies. here’s Harvey’s front & back frames test-fitted, lined up foot-to-foot, so now he can drop the side rails in.
Here’s Bill’s full test-fit. It was mostly his tree that we used, so his stool has its roots right next to his shop at home.
I didn’t get pictures the last day, I got kinda busy.
It was great fun, despite the heat. when the dust settles up here, I will look into scheduling another trip to the Woodwright’s School next year. it’s quite a place.
