Note: All three items have sold. Thanks for your interest in my work!
I have one of my staked armchairs finished and ready to ship anywhere in the contiguous United States.
The chair is made using red oak and is finished with organic linseed oil, beeswax and a burnishing process I’ve been experimenting with for the last year. The seat and chair’s back are configured for general use by a sitter of a typical height.
The joinery is designed for many decades of hard use. The legs feature conical tenons that are wedged into the seat and only tighten with use. All the joints are assembled with hide glue, so if a repair is ever necessary, the broken part can be easily removed, repaired and replaced.
It is the most comfortable chair form I make. I can sit in it for hours without complaint.
The price is $850 plus actual shipping costs via LTL common carrier. I am happy to deliver it anywhere within a 100-mile radius of Cincinnati for no charge.
Also, if you would like an Argentinian sheepskin (which is a fantastic cushion), I can include one for $30 (my actual cost).
Drop me a line through my website if you are interested.
2 Staked High Stools
I usually only sell these stools here at the storefront, but they are stacking up as of late because I’ve been making them for classes, a book and demonstrations. The stools are made from Southern yellow pine and are finished with an oil/varnish blend.
These stools are great for the shop. You can sit on either side of the seat. When you sit inclined toward the floor with your feet on the floor, it places your head and hands directly over your work. If you turn the stool around and sit on the other side, you sit upright with your feet on the cross-stretcher.
I have two stools available: One is 23” from the floor (on its high side); the other is 21” off the floor (also from the high side). The stools are $150 each.
Of course, the best deal here is to pick them up at the storefront. But I’d be willing to discuss shipping them in the lower 48 or delivering them. I caution you that packing and shipping these stools can be expensive.
Again, drop me a line through my website if you are interested.
A Note on Prices
If you are interested in sharing your opinion on my prices, I suggest WoodNet or Lumberjocks, and not the comments.
