Furniture update

Hello again

A few weeks ago Mike finished making a traditional Scottish 'cutty stool'.  It's more a chair than a stool, but lower and wider than a normal dining chair.


We first saw a chair like this when we visited friends in Fife, and went to Kellie Castle.  They seem to be a kind of cottage furniture, and had a bit of revival in the 1930s when similar ones were made by a craftsman called Lorimer.  These days, it seems no-one is making them.


Mike's made this one from ash, with really beautiful grain.  Doesn't it look particularly lovely with a quilt nearby?!


Should you be interested in having your own cutty stool, please visit our Etsy shop!
