The pattern he has is for a foot stool that he made for his parents. The idea of a kneeler is a period thing (check Catholic stuff). The housemates rendition is almost exactly like one seen in a period painting. I will find the painting and include that information when the project is complete.
As to the use ... in this case it is disabilities AND it is furniture.
The project itself is already in motion. It will involve woodwork in the construction, wood burning in the decoration and needlecraft in the comfort enhancement. It will NOT be an A&S project at this point but will involve the labors of several Shire Members. The several of us are actually pretty excited about it.
updates as they happen ....

<<< Just talked to my housemate.
Artemisia will have one by Estrella, as a gift from the Shire of
evidently the housemate has made similar before. (he is fairly
gifted at woodworking). He has a pattern already. >>>
Is this one, or the one made for the East (?) Kingdom based on a
period piece or on period illustrations? Or is this just an SCA
creation? If the former, I'd love a how-to article on this for other
kingdoms/baronies etc. to use in creating their own.
Of course, then I'll have to decide whether it is best placed in the
HOME, SWEET HOME section (like other furniture files), in the area
with SCA courts, the CRAFTS section or the DISABILITIES section. :-)
