Copying a mid-century stool….mid-14th century BCE

There's a Theban lattice stool in the British Museum that I find to be shockingly modern looking. The construction looks so light and minimal that I decided to build an accurate replica for myself and see how it well it stands up to daily use. This blog documents that build but also tries to explain some of the procedures and reasoning of the ancient Egyptian craftspeople who developed the design - from the point of view of a hobbyist woodworker in pandemic era Toronto 3500 years later.
