My Zoser Stool (paying homage to Zoser and Imhotep of ancient Egyptian fame) is a pair of Z-shape cantilevered frames joined with large splines that I first noticed in the construction of splined boat knees (which can also be bent laminations). Boat building techniques are often informative for my furniture designs, considering that wooden boats have been built since before Zoser's time and that a sailor's life depends on sound construction.
