this table & chairs set is for my 2 youngest Grandbaby girls. one is 2 and her sis will be 1 soon. I’ve been working on these for a while. I’m really happy to have them finished. unfortunately, I won’t be “hand-delivering” them. :( But, I will be shippin em out in a few days, and they will get them before Christmas…... whew !!! “Santa”, was a lil worried…...This is one of the biggest wood projects I’ve done. I’m very happy with the way they turned out. Chairs are all mortise & tenon. the table is pocket holes, and the legs are made to “break-down”, for ezier shipping. They are all 100% Walnut, and finished with Min Wax Satin Poly. (3-coats). Thnx for taking a look. I appreciate it. The only other thing I might have done, was to put 3 vertical slats on the upper chair backs, but, I still like they way it looks without them. oh, and the table is 24×21x24, and the chairs are 11×10 3/4×11

The set looks great Roger, and I can see it was a lot of work too! I’m sure this set will be in the family for a very long time!

What a wonderful gift. The real joy is seeing their smiling faces as they invite Grandpa to have a tea party. Great work.

Very nice work Roger. Did you cut mortises on a chiseler or drill press?? Lots of slots for that impressive project. Keep up great work

Nice set for the grand daughters! Can you just imagine all the tea parties they”ll have? Looks like to me a lot of hard work went into these, as well as all the love behind this no doubt family heirloom. Great job Roger, you should be proud. Maybe you can get a video of them opening up their present.

Lovely furniture, great design!
Agree with Mark, that’s heirloom quality, bet it will be passed down for several generations.

Great work Roger.

From the pictures, I think they are going to last a very long time.
I am sure they will use the set quite a bit.

Excellent work, Roger.
I made a set for my daughter very similar to this a long time ago. I’ve still got the chairs in the basement.
The table bit the dust when someone, who will go unnamed, decided to use it as a step stool.
Anyway, your grandkids will get a lot of use with this gift.
Thanks for sharing with us.

I’ve only one suggestion before you ship them, write a small poem or passage beneath the table or chairs that expresses your hopes and dreams for them and sign it. They will find it in time and reflect upon the love you put into the gift for them..
