Balancing work and play

A combination of strong winds, availability of kayaking partners, and other commitments seems to have meant that I have spent far too much time off the water over the last few weeks.

Much of that time has been spent in the workshop making paddles (can't really complain at this), but it did occur to me that if I was just sitting around sometime, I could maybe sit on a Greenland Balance Stool.

This is the prototype made from Japanese oak - which was a windowsill in its last incarnation (and an expensive packing case before that).

Seems to work pretty well for me, but Catherine and Emma think it is too easy to balance - but then, they tend to find most seakayaks relatively stable.

Is it a commercial product, and if so, at what price?
