Tractor Seat Stools
For the past two years I have been working on a design for a comfortable stool based on a tractor seat. After working out several prototype seats this winter, I am now offering this stool in three different sizes - all available in different heights and woods. This stool features a hand carved sculpted seat that is based on an antique metal tractor seat. The stool is unbelievably comfortable to sit on and has a beautiful grain pattern in the deeply carved seat. The legs of the stool are all hand turned from tiger maple and the box stretcher assembly provides a great deal of structural strength to the design. The stool is finished with a natural hand rubbed varnish – waxed and buffed to a satiny sheen.
The photo below shows the family of stool sizes I have developed: child's, regular and large.
This photo shows a pair of regular sized stools with Cherry seats and Tiger Maple legs - at a typical 25" seat height for a 36" counter.

This stool was designed with a 31" seating height to compliment one of my standing desks - giving the customer the option of using the desk in a seated position as well.
