Olive Ash Stool

A storm in December last year, brought down an ash tree not far from where we live.This is mentioned in an old post (wind fall ash) I cut two 3' logs from this tree into live edged, chunky boards . I had been keeping an eye on this timber and decided that it was ready to be worked. So I cut a chunk into three pieces for stool tops, along with some birch that has been drying in the shed for legs. I put together my first olive ash topped stool, three legs were fox wedged, one I left as a wedged through tenon. This gives the stool a nice little quirk :)
