I ,made this chair for my three year old daughter to go with the table I made her. It is made of pine with some color of minty green that my wife picked out from a free sample of Gliden paint she got from the companies web site. The seat opens and there is a box underneath. I didn’t use all the different types of joinery I wanted to on this project due to time constraints but it turned out ok and she loves it.

Very nice. I’m sure she does love it. It doesn’t matter too much about the joinery and all but the happiness of the recipient that’s paramount. :)

What a great gift for a little girl. She will not care if it is only glued together. It looks like the color matches other things in her room.

Nice job, Loditus!..............Jim

Those look like fun seats and you did a good job picking out a design with some sophistication.

thanks for posting

I didn’t see the heart at first on the chair back but then “of course!” cause it matches the table decoration. I like the rule joint on the seat and the back leg curve at the top. A fine pair.

She should enjoy it for a long time. Well done.
