The process used in creating our twisted wooden stools is quite awe inspiring to behold. When we first discovered these beauties in Thailand, we had the pleasure of witnessing it first hand. With multiple members of a village involved in the process, it takes a legacy of carving skills, passed through generations to create each stool.
Each begins from a large segment cut from the branch of a Monkey Pod Tree. The segments are rough-cut with a saw to remove the bark, and to create the general, more rectangular shape of the stool. This single, solid block of wood is then passed to an Artisan who is highly skilled in carving. With just a set of chisels, we watched as one man sat cross-legged on the ground chipping and carving the wood. Slow and precise, his steady hands sculpted near-perfect symmetry as he hollowed the stool’s center and carved the graceful twist into its sides.
Once he was finished, another artisan took the stool into a small studio to sand and chisel away any remaining ridges and hard marks left on the wood from the carving Artisan before him. He evened the entire surface to a smooth finish and passed the stool to the final artisan, or artisans. Grandmothers in the village give the stools their final touch by applying wax finish by hand.
|Please Note:||Each stool will display natural variations in grain, color, finish, and distinctive qualities such as knots and cracks. Small cracks may exist upon arrival or appear overtime as the wood settles and adjust to the environment in which it is placed. As the lumber is naturally finished and untreated, splits and cracks are an expected part of the wood drying and settling. We recommend keeping the wood out of direct sunlight. Regularly oil to maintain luster and shine.|
