This past Christmas my mother gave us some money to buy our two yr old daughter something for Christmas from her. I told my wife to buy some lumber and I would build her a tea party table. So about a week before Christmas I got started and finished just in time.
it is made from pine shelving finished natural with three coats of satin polyurethane.

Conratulations, you’re now making family heirlooms. She’ll keep this forever. Nice work.

I like this a lot, Miike! I’m having a little trouble with visualizing the scale. I’m guessing the table is about 24” high?

Very nice, Mike. This is just the sort of furniture that every little girl needs in her room to have tea with all of her friends- real and imaginary. She should get lots of use out of this and be able to pass it on to her children.

Great post.
