Santa needed some help this year, so I volunteered to build this table and chair set. It was to go with the tea set Santa would be bringing my granddaughter, Ellie. The table is 12” in diameter and 8” high. I actually scaled down the proportions from an antique round oak table that we have in our basement. As you can see from the first picture, the paycheck was priceless.

That has got to be the nicest looking child furniture set I’ve seen on this site. You done good…

Very impressive. That set should get passed down to Ellie’s children and to their children.

Yeah, that’s priceless. Very nice work on the table and chairs; Larry’s right, their sure to be family heirlooms. Congratulations on the beautiful and very blessed grandchildren too.

Great work, Jim. Great pic, too. You can tell she loves it—and she’ll always remember you made it for her. Thanks for sharing.
