Sammy the Sausage Dog
Sammy the sausage dog, is a footstool or 'roaming' coffee table inspired by the native North London Dachshund. He has a glossy black coat (ebonized walnut), diddy, hand-turned natural walnut legs - and is currently on the lookout for a loving new home.

Based on an artist's sketch, Sammy distills in timber form the essential character of the much-adored sausage dog. Measuring just 14cm tall and 60cm long, Sammy is fairly life-size and finds himself in the perfect position for resting weary feet or a stray cup of coffee - but probably not both. His jauntily-angled legs and beautifully curved body mean Sammy is an extremely happy, well-adjusted boy.
Sammy's black coat is achieved with ebonization, a process for permanently darkening timbers without the use of pigments or conventional stains. His natural walnut legs are hand-turned in the Chiltern Hills and wedged into the stool top with traditional split tenon joints.
To achieve his lustrous sheen, Sammy the sausage dog is finely sanded and oiled multiple times and then waxed by hand.
