This handsome little stool is based upon numerous antique examples from the 17th century. Made entirely of oak, it serves not only as seating, but also provides lockable storage under the seat. The wide, elegantly carved aprons create a box or chest for storing valuables. The stool is furnished with hand forged iron snipes bill hinges and a hand forged lock. It is finished with a traditional linseed oil and beeswax blend to highlight the natural colors and grain patterns of the wood.
