This is the epitome of my line of stools. It’s the result of months-long discussions and drawings with a client whom I never met. What I hadn’t anticipated was the amount of time it would take to shape the legs into ovals. From the floor to the seat, the base is nothing but ovals and compound curves that defied machine sanding. It took hundreds of hours to make the surface scratch free for the dark walnut stain. The oval shapes required twice the amount of wood as the regular legs and are made in three sections: hence the expense. The measurements are the same as my other barstools. The weight is another matter. The Chevalier stools weigh 23.4 lbs compared to 17.4 lbs. A less expensive version of this stool can be made by eliminating the ovals and building them like my other stools, with flat-sided legs. Contact me for further information.
