I’m still not entirely sure how this works.
So very very cool.
The design makes sense to me; it’s the patience I can’t wrap my head around.
Interesting how he uses a modern steel scale, modern pencil, Modern sandpaper, and a wooden framed scroll saw.
he also doesn’t sharpen his chisels very often.
but that dang sure is a tremendous amount of work for a little kid’s stool.
That’s pretty awesome. It looks like a modified pliers hinge. Patience of Job.
It’s like the Roubo bookstand but taken to the fourth dimension. Very amazing. The rare random Japanese woodworking joint trifecta is in play for me today:
But sometimes it’s the process, not the product.
I can appreciate the skill and engineering of the stool, but I really admire the elegant beauty of simple things like this. So lovely.
It looks like the process could scale up to an adult stool if you prefer?
Having thought about it carefully it is conceptually just a series of layers each with pretty basic shapes. We might have trouble making it from a single piece of wood, but all the layers are perfect thickness each to cut them from quarter or even half-inch thick wood and glued face to face. One could not hide the dodge but you could flaunt it by making it from several species so it had racing stripes.
My dad was one of those craftsmen that could look at something in a picture and go to his shop and make it…and he was always coming up with things like this that he could make out of a single piece of wood with no fasteners… I always thought it was magic. Wish I had not been so interested in chasing girls and learned more from him, lol.
