Expertly crafted of seven thick pieces of black cherry wood, this New England stool from the 1800's is a child-size delight. The woodworker used the mortise and tenon method of construction, where the parts of the stool are joined to each other with rectangular tenons (tongues) which fit snugly into the mortises (holes). The tenon was wedged into place with a sliver of wood; no glue or nails were used. As the wood would shrink a bit over the years, the tenons would fit even more tightly, causing them to protrude slightly above the surfaces.

Was this made by a loving father so his child could join him at milking time and then sit by the fire? As if he were building an adult stool, he took the time to chamfer the edges, including the two crossbars that join the canted legs. The color of the cherry wood has darkened over the 100-plus years into a handsome reddish-brown with the surfaces worn smooth, especially on the seat, which has a wonderful patina.

This antique stool stands 9 inches tall to the top of the seat; the top measures 9 1/4 inches by 4 3/4 inches. From one outer edge of a leg to the other, measuring lengthwise across the stool, is also 9 inches. On the sides of the piece, the outer distance from leg to leg is 7 1/2 inches. It weighs 2 pounds, 9 ounces and is in excellent shape, sturdy and ready to be used in so many ways to decorate your home.
