This is why Vermonters can't afford UVM tuition!

~Clearlake Furniture of Ludlow is making 150 cherry stacking chairs for the University of Vermont, called The Waterman Stacking Chair. Owner Brent Karner said he has been thinking for years about the engineering required for this type of chair, and the request from UVM provided the opportunity to bring his design to fruition. The wood for the chairs is being cut in Vermont.

When sending your offspring to school how do you expect them to become a "smartass" if not seating in a made for them butt sling. The education authorities know what is best for your future and their friends wallets. Carry on you wayward sons of a itch.

The wood for the chairs is being cut in Vermont, and is a sustainable resource, but the cash being drained from Vermont taxpayers bank accounts is not!

"So you have this yellowish leaf here, here and here -- it always lines up perfect and it's a little thing but those are the important things, I think, that go into a custom piece of furnIture. It's more than just a working tool, it's a working piece of art," Karner said.

Of course all these details come at a cost. Each of the 150 chairs cost more than $600
