LostArtPress on InstagramAt the Kentucky Folk Art Center (again) with @burnheartmade checking some curves of Chester Cornett’s Fat Man Rocker. And buying walnut for upcoming commissions.I am amazed at how quickly the @benchcrafted Hi-Vise has become my friend. #neversponsoredPhoto Courtesy of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston This little joined stool is a partial survivor from the 17th century. The turnings, the moulding profiles on the aprons and stretchers, and the chisel-chopped dentil decoration all indicate a strong relationship between this stool and numerous other furniture pieces from the entire 17th century in Plymouth Colony. The frame, although refinished long ago, is intact and original. The seat/top board is an early replacement, having been pictured in Wallace Nutting’s books in the 1920s in essentially the same condition. The stool originally had turned feet below the stretchers, so adding perhaps 3" or 4" more to its height. There is very little “rake” or splay to the side frames of this stool. Some of the rails on this stool are riven so slim that the tenons are “scant” in places. This means that the tenons are not necessarily full thickness throughout. This stool is the first place we noted the inner chamfer on the stiles. It occurs throughout almost all other Plymouth Colony joined chairs and tables as well. — from “Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” by Jennie Alexander and Peter Follansbee #Make_a_Joint_Stool_from_a_Tree
