julian beattie, Boilermakers Stool (TABLES, CHAIRS, DESKS 2022)

This bar or desk stool is crafted from Douglas Fir with a Bitumen stain to tone down the colour and bring out the grain. It is an experiment in using curved joinery in a more structural junction. The "Key Piece" joint I designed is sound in holding the corner while still maintaining the continuous parallel curve. One of things that appeals in this brickwork joint is the minimal joins at the start and finish of the curve allowing the eyes to pass around with the least distraction, as well as the ability to use continuous boards and grain around the corner. Makes for a lovely stool I've been sitting on for a while now to design more stuff for people. www.makestuff.com.au. Insta: Makestuff11
