Spalted Maple Hearth Stool


Hearth Stool in Spalted Maple: three-legged stool with scooped seat, tapered octagonal legs and wedged leg tenons.

Hearth Stools are a line of one-of-a-kind numbered stools. These stools explore the interaction of wood's wild and wooly-grained nature with the constraints of form and smooth, cultured, touchable presentation. The seats are one large chunk of hand-selected wood I cut down the middle and book-match. The legs are attached with a wedged tenon all the way through the seat and the leg-tops can be seen peeking through. They are finished with a satin/matte durable clear finish. They have gripping feet for stability.

"Spalted" means the maple wood has a marbled look of black and brown lines running through it.

Your hearth stool could be the centerpiece of a room. It is heirloom quality, finely wrought woodwork at a more reasonable price than typical furniture pieces of their caliber.

The stools are a comfortable sitting height for an average adult, a little shorter than a dining room chair. They are sturdy to sit on, but easily moved around.

Free shipping is available on sets of two or more stools (see other listings on this Etsy page).

Standard height is 17", though they can vary from 16-19" tall, depending on particular chunk of wood. I can make them from 14-25" tall so if the height you'd like isn't listed as an option, please contact me.

Awesome quality craftsmanship. Superb detail, and rock solid build. Second order from Ryan and he goes the extra mile, his products are superb and very reasonably priced. His customer service is exceptional. Could not recommend more highly.

Beautifully made. Seller very responsive. Would absolutely purchase again.

Incredibly well made. BEAUTIFUL grain. Buy stuff from this guy. Amazing.

Yes, it's worth it. When it comes time to pass the stool along to your children, they will fight over it.
