Childs Seat

A chair made for one of the kids my wife babysits. She asked me to build this after noticing he (a 1 year old) was trying to sit on the first step of a step stool we have in the house. On Saturday morning she mentioned she would like a seat for him to sit/climb on – by Saturday evening this is what I had completed.

Can’t tell you how many ‘on-the-fly’ design changes were made as we went back and forth with “OK, that sounds good” to “That wasn’t what I had in mind, can you change this?”.

Finished with water based stain and poly.

No strap. That would defeat the purpose of him crawling all over it and sitting whichever way he pleases. He was even crawling through the back. It’s only about 4-5 inches tall.

Pretty slick. I made something similar for my granddaughter and she dragged it with her wherever she went. I’m sure Tucker will be quite pleased.

Nice chair but can he get his head stack though the back?

Woody – not really. The gap is big enough for him to crawl through. believe me he’s already tried.
