Handmade four-legged stool from Hooked on Hooks

Handmade four-legged stool from Hooked on Hooks

Whether you sit on them, stand on them, put your feet up on them, use them as side table, plant or lamp stand – or simply look at them – there’s no getting away from it, a stool is one of the most useful items of furniture to have in the home.

Pictured is a four-legged stool from Hooked on Hooks made from recycled wood. Please note that this is a handmade piece of furniture. Each peg-jointed leg was painstakingly hand-shaved over several days using hand tools – literally, no lathe was employed.

Incorporating the original rope handle, the result is a truly quirky design that also allows the stool to be hung up out of the way, if desired. (Please note that this design is repeatable).

When is a coat rack not a coat rack?

Handmade, kiln-dried French oak stool from Hooked on Hooks

Handmade, kiln-dried French oak stool from Hooked on Hooks (£130.00 including FREE shipping to mainland UK)

When it’s a stool, of course…

By way of expanding the Hooked on Hooks’ line-up, I have decided to add furniture items per se to my repertoire. I have made stools before, as well as other items such as nest tables, garden tables, clothing rails, shelf units and so on, but this is the first time I’ve made a non-coat rack piece for stock.

The stool is currently on display at The Gallery, Stourhead, along with several Hooked on Hooks’ coat racks. Don’t be put off by this. If you are interested in these items (details can be found in the Products section of my site at http://www.hookedonhooks.co.uk/c/19/all-products), just email me -Steve Gamblin – at hello@hookedonhooks.co.uk and I’ll confirm availability and retrieve the item for immediate dispatch, if required.

Features: Concave seat with drainage holes.  Anti-wet underfoot gliders
