I made this high chair for my daughter about 3 years ago (she’ll be 4 in two weeks). It was based off a project in a magazine (either Wood or Amer. WW I believe), but I used M/T joinery rather than biscuits and substituted a Christian intarsia scene for the original ‘hungry hound’ scene.
The chair is all red-oak (including the tray), and the intarsia consists of black walnut and poplar. It was my first intarsia project, and the first time I ever cut angled tenons. I finished it with multiple coats of wipe-on Minwax poly. It has held up very well with abuse from both kids!
