These pieces are particulularily exciting to me because of the joinery. All the mortice and tennon joints on the stools are done on the lathe in a jig that I have long dreamed of making. The benefits are that I can get 2 precicely sized tenons that line up perfectly even though the piece of wood is not straight. This is the bonus of turning them on their centres and cutting the mortices with a jig mounted router. I am looking forward to developing some chair designs with these techniques.
The driftwood has been lightly sanded and coated with Osmo hardwax oil. The seat tops are all Red Cedar burls and they have been turned as well to dish out the center. The table tops are reclaimed Douglas fir.
