the phi stool is based on triangular geometries and chance operations.
together, forms are generated.
the surface of the stools are left un-milled, but sanded to reflect a certain stage of harvesting lumber, which is almost always unseen.
tops are finished with a chance drip-ebonization finish, which reacts with the natural tannins in the wood.
the edges of the stool top are hand-hewn with a draw-knife.
the legs are made of Fraxinus americana (White Ash), a very hard and resilient North American hardwood.
features through mortise & tenon leg to seat joint, and a dovetail housing joint (across the seat grain - for durability and strength).
made of Quercus rubra, Prunus serotina & Fraxinus americana (White Oak, Black Cherry & White Ash).
finished with 100% tung oil.
