Child's Chair & Table
Issue: Issue 278
Posted Date: 6/28/2011
I have just finished a chair and table for my grand daughter, Alice, and mailed it away to Chicago. It was designed with a one+ year old in mind, with an eye to the future. It was a fun band saw, router, lathe project with a laminate top, yet took more time than I care to admit.
Since I live in San Diego, it had to be built and finished and shipped flat to be put together by the proud yet tool-challenged parents with only a screw driver and glue.
As Alice grows, I will turn some longer legs, add the 1-1/2" stud to each and mail off. A couple of chairs for a 4 year old will be in order as well. The legs were one of my first turning projects, yet square legs with bull-nosed edges would work as well.
