Coal Shovel Stool

$1,025.00 - $1,225.00

The Coal Shovel Stool traces its origin to an unlikely partnership between craftspeople from opposite sides of the globe – Maine and New Zealand. The effort shows the influences of both craftsmen, pairing the stark, haltingly beautiful kiwi aesthetic with joinery, materials and finish work synonymous with Thos. Moser. Crafted with a hand-shaped cherry or walnut seat and turned ash legs, the stool’s appeal is understated, making it perfect for compact counter spaces where meals and conversation are daily, lifelong occurrences.

Downloads Product Sheet


The fundamental design of the Coal Shovel Stool borrows on the New Zealand craftsman’s appreciation for purpose. The seat, carved from a single block of cherry or walnut, mimics a tractor seat or milking stool. Its graceful shape follows natural human contours, while highlighting the beauty of its dense grain.

The Moser contributions to the stool are every bit as vivid, seen in the tapered legs that enter the seat in stout tenons and in the thoughtfully placed spreaders that are positioned for resting feet.

Like all Moser pieces, the Coal Shovel Stool will serve its purpose with simplicity in design. It’s a stool to be taken for granted while welcoming closer scrutiny when its understated beauty catches the eye.

It is deliberately crafted with a small footprint and without a back, the Coal Shovel Stool nests beneath a counter and fits neatly with other stools to maximize space.
