Wash/Hall Stand Legs

Wash/Hall Stand Legs

A hallstand or by its other name hatstand is a convenient rack on which to place your coat or hat, pretty ordinary.

So we draw our attention to the washstand, which has some remarkable history associated with it. The ancient greek engineer Philo of Byzantium in his pneumatica, describes a washstand driven by an escapement mechanism. A spoon attached to a counterweight and a string is fixed at a pivot point allowing it to drop once filled with water. Once the spoon drops, the string is slack allowing a door to release a pumice. He goes on to indicate the existance of water clocks driven by a similar escapement mechanism.

Quote: "its construction is similar to that of clocks".

Please feel free to contact our office to discuss custom sizes and timber species that you may require. We can machine legs to order for you; however there are costs involved for this service.
