The Woodford perch stool is perfect for reducing back strain both as a desk chair and an entrance way seat. Although taller than the standard chair or bench, the forward angled seat actually makes it significantly easier to put on boots and shoes.
If used as a desk chair, it needs to be fitted to the primary user. The person’s measurements will determine the final height.
The Woodford is so named because the village of Woodford in Meaford, Ontario was originally populated by a good number of Quakers. Quakers were known to look at things just a little differently than their neighbours, but were also generally successful. Just like this stool – a little different, but highly effective.
This example was made with a wormy maple seat and ebonized red oak legs. Standard stools have a pine seat and hard maple legs, but can be made of almost any combination of woods. The style of the legs can also be modified to suit your tastes. 22 1/2″H x 15 1/2”W x 14 1/2” D.
