Carved-edge milking stool
A traditional three-legged stool with octagonal legs (drawn from the tradition of Welsh “stick chairs”)
and a seat edge carved with a drawknife. Two layers of differently colored milk paint highlight the texture:
shown here are black over red and bayberry green over red. I have also finished solid white oak stools
with linseed oil, garnet shellac and black wax, which gives a lovely antique effect.
