Old elm and applewood stool
A milking stool made from a rough old piece of elm with a lovely grain pattern, mounted on three rough-hewn applewood legs. The applewood was from a wind-damaged branch of an old Bramley apple tree in the farm, and the elm was just sort of laying around waiting to be loved again.
Two children's stools, made from a wonderfully-figured oak hall table, and using the beech legs from an orphaned dining table, re-turned on the pole lathe to remove all the varnish. Seen in a modern setting with a children's table also made from orphaned tables (see the barley-twist legs?) but painted with chalk paint just for fun. Don't worry, the painted tabletop wasn't a nice piece of oak - just a rather nasty piece of modern veneered chipboard and for once, I agreed with a local auctioneer who often says "it would look lovely painted".
