Mike's been busy in his workshop, making very lovely 'Windsor stools' and a three-legged chair.
Here are two stools made of ash. These have scooped seats, turned legs, and steam-bent "stretchers" between the front legs. Very comfortable, perfect to keep handy in a corner (or for fishing on a river bank?).
Here, we have a three-legged "occasional" chair. This fits really nicely in a corner, having only one back leg, so would be perfect for a bedroom. Two turned and three hand-shaved spindles form the back, and there are three turned legs. The quilt can also be seen here!
I would recommend this chair for occasional use, or as a bedside chair; to keep the design uncluttered there are no leg stretchers, so heavy use would put more strain on the leg joints. Of course, it's fine to sit on! It's just that a chair with stretchers will stand up better to constant use.
In the photo above you can see how the horizontal crest and back spindles are joined. Each spindle fits into a hole in the crest, and then the outside and centre spindles are also fixed with small, strong wooden pins called treenails.
