TICONDEROGA-The Ticonderoga Heritage Museum plans to debut the "Three Legged Stool" at the Taste of Ti fundraiser.
The event will be held on Thursday, May 19, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ticonderoga High School cafeteria.
The handcrafted work of art will be the focus of a silent auction scheduled to open at the event.
"Dan Lee, a resident of Crown Point, spent the winter months in his woodshop crafting a number of items, one being this exceptional three-legged stool, which he has graciously donated to the Heritage Museum," said June Curtis of the Ticonderoga Historical Society. "The museum will unveil the stool at the Taste of Ti and afterwards place it on display at the Heritage Museum until July 30 - coinciding with the downtown Ticonderoga Streetfest - when the auction will close and the winner determined.
"The handsome stool holds much interest and appeal made from a countless variety of woods," Curtis added. "The seat is made from paduak, Spanish cedar, lacewood and pine; the back from ash, beech, maple and mahogany; and the legs and stretchers are constructed of ash, cherry and maple. While the mixture of woods create a charming mosaic, the stool is quite functional and would find comfort in a kitchen, feel secure pulled up to a bar or serve nobly as a place from which to read poetry to an appreciative audience."
