Product description

The Forest Stool is a celebration of the College's commitment to sustainably managed forest lands; something we have been a part of here at Berea since 1897. The ash used in these stools is harvested by our College Foresters in an effort to protect our 9000 acre forest from the invading Emerald Ash borer. Berea College is committed to practices of biological woodsmanship including the use of horses to minimize the impact to the forest soil.

Inspiration for this stool came from a wonderful stool made by famed Eastern Kentucky chairmaker Chester Cornett for author Wendell Berry.  Hand split with all parts shaped and finished on the shaving horse, and using greenwood joinery techniques, this stool champions the contributions of generations of Appalachian chairmakers.
