My two older sons have two children each, in the 1 to 3 year age range so last year I made these two tables and four chairs from recycled woods. Pine for all but the heavy tops that are hardwoods. The parents like them because they are sturdy enough for the mothers to sit on and heavy enough that the children can’t easily drag them about too much. They are getting a lot of use. The joints are mainly Festool domino floating tenons and the tops are held on with wooden cleats screwed to the tops and floating in grooves on the inside of the aprons to allow movement. They were eventually finished with several coats of polyurethane followed by a final steel wool waxing but I think they were still awaiting the finishing when these shots were taken.
