This was the first project I did for someone that was not family. It was a table and chairs from Wood Magazine that I made for my friends kids, 3 and 1 years old at the time. It was a surprise gift for Christmas and the mom cried like a baby when she seen it. It is simply MDF painted, but it is very strong and the paint I used makes it very kid friendly. The dad is a big LSU fan so the colors were just right. It is not easy to tell the size in the pics but the stools are about 14” high and the table is about 24” high. The only drawback was the kids use the chairs to climb on things. But that is more of a user issue…lol

Very nice. Wait until they find out they can reach even “higher-up” things by standing on the table instead of the chair.
Well done.

They’re perfect. Don’t worry about kids climbing on them, it’s just their nature, and there are no square corners

Wonderful set and equally wonderful story. Great and thoughtful gesture for a friend.

Very nice! Our kids had similar table/chairs but they were store bought plastic ones. They sat at that table coloring, putting together puzzles and playing with little figure characters many hours. I’m sure your friend’s family will get lots of use from it!
