Created by Brad Smith
The Pitchfork Armchair lives in the heart of Brad's design concept. New life and purpose is given to the ax handles that Brad had seen during his childhood on the farm. Solid ash wood is turned on a century old ax handle lathe. A scallop texture is created as the lathe cuts a continuous spiral down the length of the wood blank. These legs are then sanded by hand and cut to length. They are then attached to the solid cherry seat by a through tenon fastened with a solid walnut wedge. The seat is sanded to a smooth contour that everybody would find comfortable. Arms are created using two halves of a real steel pitchfork. Your feet can find a home on the solid steel footrest.
