Sugar Maple Tri Stool

Pete E. Michelinie Fine Furniture
of South Pomfret

The windsor style joinery of this stool is apparent at the seat surface. Through-tapered tenons are wedged from the top to secure them for the ages. The edge of the seat has been scalloped to give a pleasant tactile feel. The flat surface allows the stool to double as a small table, bed or chair side. Through-wedged tenons join the stretcher assembly to the legs. This design requires the use of hand tools and complicated techniques. All of the joinery in the stool has to be laid out and cut without the use of machinery. The crux of the Tri Stool lies in the stretcher assembly. This three-part unit provides visual interest in the whole piece and a challenge for the maker. Once again, through-tenons are used, and the ends are left protruding ever so slightly.

Made of Sugar Maple. The stools were fumed with ammonia to give a slight caramelized color. Boiled linseed oil and paste wax finished the piece.

Dimensions: 11 1/4" Dia. Seat, 18" and 24 5/8" Tall

Price: $570
