I will be building a stool in the Windsor style, of course. Though I must confess, it is not an original design, but that is the beauty of this event; It doesn't need to be. It is my addaptation of an ergonomic stool designed by Pete Galbert, Curtis Buchannan, and Galen Cranz, that Pete dubbed "The Perch".
It is no secret that I have been experimenting with chairs for guitar players. The more I worked with my prototype the more design questions and challenges have been brought to the surface. I have been looking to solve some of these questions with a more simple stool for guitar players. With that being said, my plan is to make a dual purpose prototype "Studio/Shop Stool". I look forward to seeing all the stools made during the event, and hope you too will be participating.
