The three-legged Windsor stool has been a cornerstone of my repertoire for many years. It's a distinctive, versatile piece of furniture that is useful in any room in the house - as well as being beautiful to look at.
The glorious spalted beech seat of this particular piece really helps it stand out from the crowd. I was lucky enough to acquire this timber a few years ago from Nunhead Cemetery in south London after two large beeches came down in high winds. They've yielded some fabulous timber over the years, and this piece comes from some of the last slabs I still have in stock. Supplies are now dwindling!
The legs are in English ash, as are the two butterfly inlays set into the side of the seat to check some small end-grain splits.
