Building Rolling Owl Stools

Posted on: October 11th, 2012 by Geoffrey Warner 6 Comments

You may think that you’re looking at Santa’s Workshop…

We’ve got a seat for you!

…and you’d be right, after all even the big guy needs helpers!  Geoff & the crew are busy getting ready for the holiday season.  The first batch of cherry & walnut seats are sanded and ready for their coats of natural tung oil.

In our new addition, we’re assembling the many Rolling Owl bases that just arrived from our Maine powder-coater. Each of the staff has a favorite color.  If Buddy the Elf were here, he’d ask “What’s your favorite color?” — Big Smile Red, Lobstah Orange, Her Eye’s in Blue, Night Owl Black, Tropical Blue or Foggy Morning Green?

Rolling Owl Stool bases just arrived from the powder-coater. Love those colors!

Polly loves to help!

Once the bases are assembled and the tung oil dries on each seat, the base is paired with either a walnut or cherry seat.  With the fall season in full swing the Lobstah Orange base with a walnut seat and the Foggy Morning Green with a walnut seat have been very popular!

For those who are not familiar with the Owl Stool, be sure to read the Anatomy of an Owl.  Our Owls are more than just a stool–they’re the best seat in house!  The postural support holes literally let you sit hours without fatigue.


As always, we appreciate your support and hope that you’re enjoying everything that the Fall season has to offer!

Geoff  & the Owl Team

NEXT OWL Stool Workshop is Wednesday 10/17/12 – call to register.

    Is it possible to get a kit for a rolling stool?

    • GWStudio says:

      Hi Lorrie,
      Thanks for inquiring but we do not offer the rolling owl in kit form.
      If you wanted a rolling Owl our current lead time is about 4 weeks.
      How did you hear about us?
      Warm Regards

    I was wondering if I could purchase a base with all parts to install it to a seat that I made myself… If not, do you know where I can find a unique base.

      Hi Beth,
      Just noticed your question, sorry for the delay in responding. If you give us a call at 207 367-6555 we can discuss your request more easily. We will be on the road to a show in Baltimore for a week, starting tomorrow . Best bet is to call when we return. Cheers!

    I was wondering if the stools are height adjustable and what colors they come in. Also what is the price. I’m handicapped and need something to sit on while cooking.
