In the recent history of furniture design wood is often replaced by sheet goods for economic as well as stability reasons. Solid wood movement can cause problems in furniture construction where in sheet goods the movement is negligible. Fair enough, but why seem sheet goods not allowed to be visible? They are mostly covered up by a thin layer of veneer to make it look like it’s solid material.
 The equivalent stool exposes solid wood and sheet good as equal materials. Gluing 19 mm color mdf on 27 mm solid oak (standard industry thickness) results in a stable panel from which table tops, seats and legs can be made with a minimum amount of waste. The strong contrast between the two materials and the randomly placed legs result in a playful piece of furniture that will last a lifetime.
