The Owl Stool

The Owl Stool came about as a result of my search for ways to produce furniture that is affordable for more people while retaining the feeling of fine craftsmanship and emphasizing the natural beauty of wood. Last fall and through the winter I worked on designs that I could offer as kits as well as finished, making these pieces more accessible to people in our community and those who would like to have a hand in creating their own furniture. This spring I showed The Owl to Dr. Michael Aker, a local chiropractor, for some feedback on how it interacted with the human body. He was very excited about the design and after a couple of minor adjustments (which I have incorporated into the final design) he wrote:

"Don't think stool. This is an ergonomically designed, doctor evaluated postural support, which eases both spine tension and sitting pressures. An aesthetic balance has been struck between beautiful form and healthy spinal support."

Owl Stool Workshop:

Treat yourself to a day in our Stonington workshop where Geoff will instruct you in the assembly and finishing of your own Owl Stool. It is both fun and instructional and the result will be a truly beautiful piece of furniture you can proudly own or give someone special as a gift, destined to become an heirloom. The cost is $35 plus the price of the kit you choose to assemble.
