Re: There are stools and then there are stools

Ellis, to my mind, the stability of Esherick's design lies with the rake/splay of the legs. There is sufficient support from the stretchers, which are low and connect each leg. Good triangulation.

The rake and splay look more than 10 degrees to me. They also appear about 7" apart at the base ... which then likely required about 14-15 degrees to splay out the way they do in the picture. This is the area I need to calculate.

The legs are very slim, which is another reason the whole has such a light look. Most of his seats are about 13" x 14-15".

What do you think?

Regards from Perth

Derek
