Joined Stool Video series finale – Molding & Pegging the Seat

Well, we finally finished the joined stool video set. This is the one where Daniel inadvertently discovered an echo chamber effect when he blended two shots together. Much to his delight…

 

I’ll do some blog housekeeping one of these days, and make a page with all the videos in this series together. But they’re on youtube in a playlist there too…

I was going to put a gallery of joined stools in the video, but it was already pretty long. So here are some stools over the years. Most of these have been here before.

There’s some stand-alone videos I shot a while back, I’ll get to those soon. Nowadays, I’m shooting several about making baskets from an ash log. I also got a couple of requests, so I have plenty in the pipeline. They’re fun to do, but a bit time-consuming. I need to remember to shoot ordinary photos too…

Here’s the highlight of the past week for me – a rare sighting of a mink around the shop. They’re here a lot, but usually the only view I get is a fleeting glimpse. This one was in constant motion, but stayed in view long enough for me to get some photos…

  1. Aren’t minks amazing? I remember seeing a fisher cat (not quite the same, but similar) just a few days after we moved from New York to rural Massachusetts when I was in high school, and being fascinated with it. After we saw it, my dad referred me to an HH Munro story (under his pen name “Saki”) called “Sredni Vashtar,” which I still read every once in a while; it’s centered around a polecat-ferret, a haunting little story. Weasel-y creatures have always been a favorite sighting of mine; that shop of yours has some magic surroundings, or maybe you’re just in tune with it!

  2. really enjoyed the entire series, thank you and once again a nod to your video editor, Daniel. It was not only a how to but even if you’re never going to make a joined stool, it’s clear and interesting series to watch, and not too long.Tricky business what you do, lots of skill involved. I admire the work and admire the work you do.

  3. Peter have you ever tried a windlass to clamp the seat to the undercarriage? I would think that a length of rope tied underneath the seat twisted with a short stick would act to self-center the seat on the stool. Once twisted just wedge the stick between the legs to hold it in place.
