Similar to the step stool, I built this booster seat for my daughter back about 7 years ago. And again, this was version 2. I made two so that I could have one in our kitchen, and the other was kept in the car for when we traveled anywhere. The second one was actually handed down to our niece, and is still in use today. Not bad craftsmanship I guess if it lasted two kids over about 8 years!!!
This project was also made out of pine, with the heart hand-cut and router-edged. The slats for the seat were all cut on my table saw, and tacked in place with brads.
This seat has a single coat of MinWax stain … I believe this project was Colonial Maple, but after 8 years, it is hard to remember specifics. The entire seat has a single coat of poly finish, while the top of the slats got a second coat to help resist wear and stains.
Similar to the step stool I posted, my daughter will not let us get rid of this seat, even though she is clearly not in need of any booster any longer. Funny how even kids can be attached to projects Dad builds!!!
