Between 2010 and 2014 I lived and worked in Sydney, Australia. Seeing all the fine native timbers of Australia I wanted to get closer to this beautiful material. In 2013 I was fortunate enough to get a place at the workshop of furniture maker John Gallagher. He taught me all the basic skills that are the foundation to making a craftsman. Wood working became a new passion of mine.

The proces of designing and making this stool - which I dubbed the SYDNEY STOOL - taught me a wide range of common furniture making techniques and processes. Traditional methods of construction and hand tools were used alongside modern to create a piece of furniture that will last for generations to come.

The stool was designed as a flat pack that could easily fit my suitcase. It became a precious relic that reminds me of our wonderful Sydney years.
