Burl Stool

A very large yellow birch burl is floating atop its base of cherry creating a simple yet very elegant look.  The legs are supported by cherry crossrails and mortise and thru tenon joints pinned by walnut treenails.  Each flared leg is accented with a diamond inlay of white birch bark and 1/4 twig trim.  Butterfly keys on the top not only stabilize the check but create character.  Handrubbed mult-layered oil finishes this piece and it measures 28" diameter by 28" high
