For Christmas I made my grandson a 3in1 highchair/desk/rocker. It is based off of an Amish one I saw. I made some alterations to the design like adding an adjustable/removable table top for the high chair. It is made of red oak and finished with golden oak and truoil with the exception of the table top which was finished with butchers block oil to make it food safe. It was a lot of fun making it for him and even more fun watching him in it.

Nice work Lee. I’m impressed. I was sent that Amish version photo by several nieces who wanted me to make one for them but I was too lazy to work out the drawings to make it, I’m impressed that you did. Like that you plugged the screw holes.

I like that. Great workmanship and a happy camper using it too !! Multi function is good for most new families that are in limited space.

What happens to the high chair table when in desk mode? I also noticed that the high chair table has a rim around it. This is a very nice feature. Great build. Thanks for sharing.

Great job. He looks so happy to be using it… no matter what position it’s in. Nice attention to detail as well.
