« Part 15: First generation board with first coat of oil Part 16 of Woodworking as Therapy series Part 17: Ruminating ideas for projects »

I started making this set when my boss with about 6 months pregnant. Lou Lou turns 2 next week and I just got the chairs done. Needless to say this was a slow going project. But despite some of the parts not being the best (I made them when I probably should not have been making them) the set turned out pretty well. The look on Lou Lou’s face was worth the wait.


Thanks for looking.

Those are great. We make kids Adirondack stuff in our line and we get the same reaction from the kids. Nothing like it.

What a delightful gift! We’re sure it was worth the wait. They look great, and Lou Lou looks delighted.
