David’s taking the welding class at The Steel Yard this weekend. Thinking a bench similar to this minimal Rian RTA Bench by Semigood would be perfect just inside our door as a place to sit down and kick off your muddy shoes before you come up the stairs. Semigood makes a gorgeous wood version but I don’t think the woven seat makes sense with wet coats and boots.

Semigood’s lovely Cantilever Stool above? Not to be riffed on. Investment quality. Definitely one of those pieces you could pass down through the generations. In my dreams…

    I saw the legs when we was there, they were neat.

  6. Brook says:

    they’re likely sitting in the exact same spot as when you saw them, slowly collecting dust. time to break out the whip.

  7. john says:

    or put down the whip and move them yourself! HA!

  8. Brook says:

    ha. it’s not so much about moving them as it is sanding down the weld spots and then taking them to get powder-coated. i’m sure David has a reason for holding off… just not sure what it is.
