This chair has a checkered past. I started it before starting lessons, and finished it (the front legs) after. Like most of my projects to date, they have tended to metamorphize into their final incarnation. The first set of front legs I was never happy with. The two dowel holes in the seat are remnants of that incarnation. They now provide some support to the legs but are not really necessary. Also the finish was improved. Again this was salvaged timber, the seat it Kwila left over when my mum’s front stairs were replaced, the other timber was salvaged as well but I could not say what it is. The basic design came out of a book I bought at a sale, only slightly modified.

Nice one. As a parent of two kids under two I have thought about building my own naughty chair. your kids may remember that chair for the rest of their lives. My wife still remembers the stool that her uncle put her on. She still behaves better when she sees the chair.

Good luck.
