Here’s a good way to spend a day if you need to get away from it all: go to woods, chop down a tree, and then use the wood to make a stool. Not only have you successfully made something with your hands but you can now sit down and rest because you’re gonna be tired.
This stool, created by designers at the Italian design studio MID, is put together by a wedge, driven right through its heart. Well, through its center, at least—like the old-fashioned axel with which it shares a name.

Designed by Langton Stead, the S(tool) is a bent wood handle with two garden forks on either side. All you have to do is shove…
