A woodworker is often among the first people to hear a new product.
It’s a new thing for them to be in the know about, say, a new woodworking machine.
And then the woodworker will go out and buy it, says John Tulloch, an industrial designer who has been building wood furniture for more than a decade.
Tullos latest project is a custom-made, $3,000-plus wood-working machine called the “Woodwork” and he’s using it in the construction of a $6 million mansion in Florida.
Tiller, a former woodworker and now a venture capitalist, says the Woodwork, a three-legged stool with a wooden table that stands 8 feet tall, is the culmination of his decades of tinkering with woodworking.
The stool is a little over five feet long.
“It’s very comfortable,” Tullon says.
“I’m very happy with it.
It looks very natural.
It was made for me.”
The woodworking stool is also the product of a partnership between Tullons company, Novello, and a company called Baskin-Robbins.
Tillerson’s company, Woodcraft, is now a division of Novellos parent company, Saks Fifth Avenue.
Novella bought Novelli last year.
Baskins was founded in 1985 and has been working with the industry for a long time.
It has a long history of creating products that use wood, Tullots company says.
The company has made woodworking equipment for the National Football League, for example, and for the Olympic Games.
The Woodcraft stool has been designed with a more modern design.
The back of the stool is made from reclaimed walnut and the front of the chair is made out of walnut-framed mahogany.
The wooden legs are made of birch and the seat is made of oak.
The table itself is made entirely of wood, and the woodwork is made with a special process that is more like a traditional woodworking method than the traditional wood-making process.
The woodwork stool is about three feet high and six feet long, and is about 8 feet wide, says Tullot.
It comes in two sizes, and can be ordered in a variety of colors.
“The Woodwork is going to be one of those chairs that is going through a very different life cycle than what the original Woodcraft is going into,” Tiller says.
Tall chairs are a popular way to entertain the next generation.
For the next decade, the chair will be made available to the public, Tiller hopes.
“We want people to be able to walk around with the chair and enjoy it and be able feel it in their hands,” he says.
He says the stool could also be used as a tool for the woodworking process.
“A lot of people do use them to move the stool, and we think it could be very useful for moving wood around, to get it up and down stairs,” he adds.
