This unique stool takes the form (flat base, legs and top that curves upwards at the ends) of a carved Asante stool but was assembled with glue and nails and has legs that were turned on a lathe(European techniques).
"I would say the term 'carpentered' would apply here as it was obviously carpentered together. Stools such as this would have some prestige in that the legs were turned and the seat made out of finished boards."
