Greene & Greene Inspired Stool
Here it is, completely woven seat and the Honduras Mahogany oiled and finished. The inspiration I took from Greene and Greene includes the detail on the lower legs, the cloud lift profile of the stretcher, and of course the ebony pegs through the mortise and tenon joinery. I really like how that leg detail adds a subtle shadow line where the leg meets the floor. By tapering the insides of the legs my feeling is that it's lighter over-all than typical Craftsman furniture while the cloud lift gives a hint of Asian influence. We had a get together last night for my daughter and grandson so it was tested and approved by the neighbors!
