Eight-legged Stools
Every one has a story.

Stool #6: Second stool in White Oak - Back to square edges - solid oak from fresh-cut, air-dried wood.

Stool #6
White Oak Stool

This is really my first attempt at working with 'normal' white oak. I built this stool the same time I built Stool #5 and I kept this one pure white oak so I could see the full effect. I don't use stain on any of my projects because I believe the beauty of wood should be allowed to speak for itself.

This view showcases the beautiful grain of the white oak wood. I am especially proud of the joinery here because the narrow grain makes it look nearly seamless. I still don't know which I like better; red oak or white oak. So far it's a draw.

I've signed these early pieces on the bottom face with a wood burning pen. On later pieces I changed to my full name. I'd like to desigh a stamp at some point.

I'm not sure how to go about this. I have tried to make a branding iron sort fo thing with little luck.
