HANDMADE OAK JOINED STOOL, typical of the 17th century period, when carving on furniture fell from favour. The baluster turned legs are styled on the Doric columns found in Roman architecture and are joined by plain stretchers and simple scratch moulded rails. As with all properly joined period furniture no glues are employed for the joints, instead they are secured by means of hand-made faceted pegs pulling together slight offset holes drilled through the mortice and tenon; correctly termed ‘draw-bored and pegged’.
