The Y CHAIR is a development of the traditional three legged stool - stable, elegant and with it's gently dished seat - comfortable. This simple three legged chair with back rest in Perthshire oak or Perthshire oak is ideal in the kitchen or a cafe and looks great with the Y TABLE. Available from our shop.
The Y RANGE was designed to take advantage of a supply of local ash. A strong Y shaped component was developed to use across a range of furniture including stools, chairs, tables and desks. Ash is particularly good for steam-bending and we take a lengths of green ash, slice them exceptionally cleanly with TCT tipped bandsaw and steam-bend over a former to create the strong triangulated Y component. It is now available in Perthshire oak and Perthshire ash.
The main stems of the legs are rounded off, and traditionally "wedged" into the chair seat, whilst the curved stem flows up, is notched into the seat and forms the support for the backrest. The backrest is pre-machined, prior to steam-bending into shape. The supports are rounded off and "wedged" into the backrest, creating a strong overall structure.
The Y CHAIR in ash is spray finished with several thin coats of matt lacquer, to preserve and enhance the beauty of the light wood. In oak it has several coats of linseed and danish oil.
