the rand stool

Introducing the Rand stool. The first in a series of kem3D seating pieces than embody a fresh, 3-dimensional exploration into traditional chair weaving. The woven pattern is not only broken out of its traditional planar state, but is scaled and manipulated along its implied surface.  It is a solid maple frame built with mitered bridal and mitered moritse and tenon joinery, then woven with high strength nylon cord. Wood species as well as cord color can be specified to suit, 20"w x 19.5"l x 16"h. 

 

Rand is my grandfather's middle name, an old family name that goes back generations from him. This piece (and really anything I make out of wood) probably wouldn't have been possible without him.
