KENTUCKEY STICK CHAIRS

The original Kentucky Stick Chairs were made from humble sticks and slung together with rope. All that would have been needed was a saw and a way to make holes in wood – a perfect example of ‘off grid’ innovation. These two beautiful low, laid back, mid-century style chairs are made from Premium Redwood from Evelyn Giddings, HBG board president’s forest.  The chairs are surprisingly comfortable and fold up to be more transportable or stored.  And, when opened, they have a degree of moldability to the seat, not to mention the pleasing gappiness for air circulation in warmer weather.  They are Perfect in any garden!

The chairs were made and donated by Evan Goetz, 2020 Forestry graduate from Humboldt State University and volunteer with Humboldt Botanical Garden.  Evan is a hobby woodworker who enjoys using his skills from the Forest to the wood shop.  He currently works for Humboldt Redwood as a Forester.  Thank you Evan!
