made this chair for an auction to raise money for the highschool football team. My nephew who is gonna be a freshman did all of the sanding and my wife did the upholstery. Made from dead standing madrone found within 100 yards of my house. The acorn buttons were carved from yew wood. This chair is only 24” tall. It’s an exact replica of my adult furniture.

That is a great wee chair

I could imagine an elf sitting on it. :)

This is a fantastic child’s chair. Every kid should have one instead of having to haul themselves up onto those silly adult sized chairs. I hope it earns a good price for the team – it deserves to.
