Introducing the Handy Stool, a versatile piece which includes laminated underbearers and handcrafted, octagonal, cross-wedged legs.
Paul created his first laminated project back in 1967 and has since used lamination throughout his life, creating that which might be impossible without the technique. Combining different techniques into a single project makes us think about other options we might want as we develop our skills and knowledge. Paul has taken methods from his working knowledge of over almost six decades and has come up with this unique design. The skills presented in this project can be used in other projects such as bench seats, occasional tables and so on. Whether placed in the bedroom, living room or put to use when picking your tomatoes in the garden, this would be a perfect addition to any home.
