Rustic Stool series
Set of 5 stool iterations, made in yellow coloured high density wood fibre material.
Materials and techniques
The material is a high density wood fibre board (Valchromat) in yellow.
The 8’x4’ sheet material is cut and glue laminated into pieces of rough stock and then milled into textured components using a 3-axis CNC (computer numerically controlled) router. These components are then worked on and assembled into compositions of archetypal rustic log furniture and employing some of the same simple traditional woodworking techniques and tools involved in their making.
Additional stages within the process involve CAD (Computer Aided Design) modelling the basic ‘slab’ and ‘log’ components and stool compositions, and then manipulating the CNC machine’s CAM (computer aided manufacturing) software in order to generate the unique textured surfaces reliefs.
The pieces are sealed with a water based polyurethane varnish.
