It's been a few weeks since I've been able to build anything new for the garden, so this past weekend I got started on a simple design inspired by a stool I saw while in Amsterdam.
Battling a furious cold caught while traveling, things moved more slowly than I had hoped and I was only able complete one of these. I had intended on making at least two, possibly three.
So what is it?
It's a stool, designed to look like a solid block of wood (which it does as long as you're not too close). Since this is the prototype, some changes could be possible...
...like edges that are rounded even more than this. I like the chunky feet:
This seems like a design that would lend itself to a wider range of colors, but since I wasn't feeling great I just went with the dark deck stain/sealer for this first one since it was easy.
Although designed as a stool, it also makes a great little table:
Wow, the driveway is getting full of furniture projects!
I'll revisit this once I make a few more of these stools -- I think they'll look more impressive in groups of two or three...
