Made from stained plywood. Got the idea from a photo of a similar chair on the net only that one was for grownups. This chair took a lot of angle grinder work with enough dust for my wife to complain about for the rest of my life. But i’m happy with the result.
Thanks for viewing.

That is a very odd, yet very beautiful design. Hardly a straight line on it, which in my mind, is exactly how it should be! Way cool, and congrats!
