I needed a small chair and table for snacks and playtime. Just a 2×6 and a little plywood for a two-evening project. The SPF was really easy to practice hand tool mortise and tenons. I’m comfortable with the stability to stand on the chair myself. A little blue paint and the next morning was a happy child. The little one likes it a lot. His legs are a little short, so he has to climb in but can pull the table to him.

Another satisfied customer!

Kids always seem to love having a table and chair sized for them.

I am about to start one of these for my daughter. Just out of curiosity, how high is the table?

The table legs are 18”. Seat on the chair about 12” I think I could lop off another inch on the chair legs.

Perfect! You did a wonderful job on this set. I was searching “todler chair” cause I just built my 3 yr. old a his-size computer desk and wanted an idea on size & style – again, great work.

Have your say...
