Although I did not build a Danish Modern Stool, I did build an Esherick three-legged stool. In the same class another student build an Esherick stool with a leather seat. The class was a blast as usual and to see Chuck overseeing three projects was a laugh at times. I’m looking forward to spending more time in the Acanthus Workshop while learning to build another fine piece of furniture. Gerald M.
It’s always a blast working on these special projects with you and the rest of the gang…even Jeff.
