Tripos is a range of stools & low tables inspired by an antique Chinese stool. The 3 legs & rails meet in an equilateral triangle formed by half-lap joints strengthened by cross-grain dowels. The legs are mortise & tenoned into the top. Oil & Wax is carefully applied by hand to provide durability & protection against spills & heat, being easily wiped clean using a damp cloth.


Most years I make a short batch run of 5-10 examples in temperate hardwoods, including Oak, Ash, Cherrywood, Sweet Chestnut & Elm. I can also make these to order, for example with a wider top for use as a side table.

In 2023 I made and sold a special edition of 5 in a stunning example of English Walnut. I will be searching around in 2024 to see if more of this timber may be available locally.


The Tripos range includes:

  1. Stool/Side Table / 35 x 48.5 cm

  2. Low Low Table / 35 x 40 cm 

  3. Low Oval Table / 67 x 41.5 x 40 cm 

  4. Bar Stool / 35 x 74 cm
