The dovetail joint pre-dates written history. Considered as one of the strongest joints in carpentry, it has widely been used in wood working techniques. George Nakashima used a dovetail key in his furniture to bind and hold naturals cracks or ruptures in wood. The cantilever stool celebrates this joinery method and explores the strength of dovetail joints.
Three wooden planks slide and lock in place by dovetailed finger joints from which the seat plank cantilevers. Composite wood (MDF) is used to achieve this stable bench, since it is good for precision working. These three planks can easily be slid out and carried away or flat packed and stacked away.
