Re-Creation: A Willow Woven Stool Project

To be honest, I don’t remember where I picked up this piece . . . probably at a thrift store or in a dumpster. I loved the willow woven bottom and so it was one of the possible projects that made its way onto the moving truck from Maryland.

I began by putting inlay onto the top (seat), cutting the ends at 45 degrees before gluing and clamping.

I finished the center piece with a purple heart border around a piece of weeping cherry from a tree my neighbor cut down.

After drying and sanding, I added Tung Oil finish to the top

and then grain filler.

Finally, I used Howard’s Feed-N-Wax to give a final luster to the wood inlay.

A bit of clean up and shine to the legs and supports and Wahla! a lovely repurposed stool.

During these hard days, it gives me great joy and a deep sense of peace to spend some soul time in Re-Creation 😉.
