Legolas stools, 2020
The Lagolas stools design aesthetic accentuate and celebrate curves. The legs are cut out from solid timber, shaped and tapered using various jigs and templates. The circular seat is cut round on a band saw and shaped by hand using a travisher and spokeshave. The rail to leg joinery is dominos. There is a halving joint where the legs meet, another jig is used for this process. Currently the Lagolas stools legs are tenoned into the seat, this design will be changing in the future to improve efficiency.
