Rob, the creator of these beautiful Handmade Wooden Stools, lives a self-reliant lifestyle on a sparse hillside in the rural west of Ireland. Living off-the-grid and growing most of his own food, he lives a quiet and simple existence.
For many years he has explored a variety of traditional crafts involving natural materials, through this he has gained an understanding of how peoples of the past must have lived off the land and also scratched many a creative itch.
He practised ropework for some time, which lead to chair seating and then (when looking for a way to work from home) started making rustic stool frames so he could seat his own designs. Modern computer technology that facilitates on-line selling has enabled this to be his full-time business and given a new lease of life to an old cottage industry.
His stools are 14 inches (36 cm) in each dimension: high, wide and deep. They are made from Ash wood which is strong, flexible, attractive and lovely to work with!
