As some of my old friends on here may know, I have not been around for some time. My wife and I have taken custody of our Grandson, he has been with us for one year. He is a victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome and sufferers from several disabilities including Cerebral Palsy. Needless to say, Hobby time has been reduced. His Therapist, who comes once a week said one thing that may Help is a chair he can sit in that would allow him to sit up and have his feet on the floor. We could not find one to fit the little guy, so I built this last Sunday and stained it that night after he tested it out. The Therapist will be here on Wednesday to work with him and I will ask if this is what she was trying to say. I used Kreg pocket hole screws to build it out of number 2 pine. Its the first time I have tried to make a chair so I am a bit proud of it, and can modify the design as needed for when he grows and I get some input from his Therapist.
