On this page you can download a collection of nine 3D models of stools belonging to the type known as ’twisted stools’.

There are many shapes of stools like these, which you can easily check on the Internet. If you are not happy with the design of our twisted stool, we hope to have tickled your imagination to design one on your own. These indeed are a very nice and interesting furniture pieces! In the pictures you can see the appearance of each twisted stool 3D model from the collection. They are  precisely-modeled, and rendering is simple but sufficient to give you the impression of their appearance when made from wood.

Twisted stools are usually made using carving technique, but there are other ways, too. One of them is based on cutting (either manually or using CNC laser cutter) the vertical or horizontal (depending on the design) cross-section of the boards of a certain thickness and their mutual gluing (stacking). In this way, a stepped piece of glued boards is obtained, which is shaped closely like a stool. By grinding the stepped surfaces obtained by gluing the boards and sanding, the stool is finished. A disadvantage of this method is that wood texture does not come to the fore.
