Make a 3-legged rustic stool.
Make a Rustic Stool in green wood. What is Green Wood? Green Wood is freshly felled, still sappy wood. To work it requires a set of simple techniques based on an understanding of how wood reacts - both to the tools, and to the dry and shrinking process. Because it is green, the wood is soft and easy to work with hand tools, and because of this, green woodwork creates little waste, and can utilise small trees and logs. It is therefore green in all senses of the word.
Rustic stools are made from cleft timber [Ash or Sycamore]. with legs of Ash in its natural form. This makes a very simple stool, and is a great course that anyone can do - no experience needed.
