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?!
