    A joint stool was popular in England during the latter part of the 18th century. It is a small, low seat that was designed to be used as a footrest or a place to sit for short periods of time. Joint stools were typically made of wood and had a simple, utilitarian design. They often had three or four legs, and the seat was made by joining two or more pieces of wood together with wooden pegs or dowels.

    These stools were typically made from a variety of different woods, including oak, ash, elm, and pine. These woods were readily available and relatively inexpensive, making them popular choices for furniture makers. Joint stools were often made from a combination of different woods, with the legs being made from one type of wood and the seat being made from another. The wood used for the seat was usually chosen for its strength and durability, while the wood used for the legs was chosen for its stability and decorative appeal.

    Joint stools were commonly found in households, pubs, and other public spaces in England. They were practical and functional, and could be easily moved and stored when not in use. Some late 18th century joint stools may have been more ornately decorated than earlier examples, with carved or decorative details such as scrollwork or inlaid patterns. However, most joint stools from this time period retained the simple, functional design that had made them popular in previous centuries.
