Hi Chair made from poplar/white oak/ash/pine.

Third picture is the neighbor girl trying it on for size.
I think the I should have had more leg splay, however it did not seem to be tippy.

Multiple woods were used because the finished product was to be painted. I’m not a fan of painting my wood projects but that’s what the lady wanted.

This was a fun project, seat carving, turning, bending.
The hardware I found for the tray was not very impressive, but I could only find one source.

Very nice work. The little guy looks like he wants some food. I was asked to try and make one for our grandson but by the time I got around to it he didn’t need it anymore.

Very nice chair, I made one sometimes ago and found hardware at Rocklers, if that can help you for the next projects.
Don’t forget to serve, there is a customer at your dining room.
Keep on making sawdust.
