I have been thinking about this chair design for 25 years so it is good to finally make one that I am happy with. The only problem is that it is designed as a stacking chair, and only one exists so far. In theory it is a stacking chair. It is made from Ash, and has a slightly springy seat. The legs are hollow so it is lighter than it looks.
Ash bark has some very distinctive lichens especially where it is not in shady woodland. This Ash is very fast grown, producing dense timber with high strength, but also greater shrinkage when drying. It was planted 20 years ago near Debenham.
