Six pictures @ 1000 words each = 6000 words.

I just need to attach the seats, plug the holes and a final sanding.

Nice looking chairs. Is that your own design or from a pattern? What kind of finish are you going to put on them? What are the approx. dimensions?

Those chairs are really cute!

You may consider re-enforcing the joints because kids are really hard on chairs. I found out first hand that even a mortise-tenon joint doesn’t hold up forever under the unique sitting styles of toddlers (and that joint has the most gluing surface area possible).

Tks all

PCorl – this is my own “design” you might say. If you go back a couple of installments in this blog you will see the dimensions. I am going to leave it up to the parents of the wee little folks to finish them with the finish of their choice. The tables and chairs that I built (where two of these chairs will go) the parents did not finish the chairs. they like the natural look.

Tks for the tip Dr. They are currently quite sturdy and when I install the seat it should be even more sturdy. I could put brackets bracing each inside corner, however to date the chairs I built a couple of years ago have been used and abused (the parents even use them) and they are still holding up. I will keep in mind your suggestion for future builds though.

Front legs 1.25×1.25×11.5

Back legs 1.25×1.5×24 or 25 (the bend is at 11.5)

All other wood is 3/4 thick . . . which sometimes is 5/8 :-/

The width of the chair, without the seat, from the outside of the legs is 10.5 inches (1.25 + 8 + 1.25)

Hope this helps
