Tough and practical, rugged and timeless.

 

A buddy of mine was redoing his cabin up in the Santa Cruz mountains in California and was looking for a rustic - contemporary style stool for his counter. We couldn't find anything that fit the bill, but there was plenty of plywood and rebar on the site, so plywood and rebar it was. After I worked up a few stool samples over a couple of months, the 'Willie Jack' rebar stool was ready. Honest materials and clean modern lines came together.

 

We could have gone with 1/2" rebar - that would have been 'good enough'.  But 'good enough' doesn't work here. We went with the big boy - .750 inch, number 7 rebar.  That's just the way we roll.

 

We could have gone with one layer of 3/4" birch ply, but again that just wouldn't cut it.  So, we doubled up and laminated two sheets together for a super strong14 ply hand finished wood seat.  Just what this stool needed.

 

Knew you would want to know...

Rebar was invented in England 1849 by a farmer named Joseph Monier.  Modern plywood was invented, in the 19th century, by Immanuel Nobel, father of Alfred Nobel
