Tibetan Stool

       Approached by a needlepoint hobbyist to design and construct a stool for one of her projects I was given only dimensions and the request to keep it fairly simple. Though woodworkers and designers would say this is Mission inspired I've never really been a huge fan of Mission design. I flared the volume out  at the base to create solidity, much like I've always admired in the ancient architecture of Tibet where their building slope outward at the bottom creating a determined solidty not unlike the Buddha's determination under the Bodhi Tree. Lofty thoughts for a mere stool.....but why the hell not.
