Modern/ Maloof Style high Chair in Walnut. This is the most recent incarnation of my High chair design, it’s basically the same as the others I’ve built but I’ve widened the footprint a bit to make it a little more stable. The majority of the shaping is done with a band saw, 5” grinder and Microplanes. I then sand down to about 320 and burnish with 0000 steel wool. The finish is a home brew wiping varnish (1/3 high gloss poly, 1/3 mineral spirits, 1/3 boiled linseed Oil) the tray is finished with “Tried and True” Varnish oil, it is much more food safe. http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx?c=2&p=45105&cat=1,190,42942
The tray locking mechanism is my design. I have still not been able to come up with an all-wood clasp that will hold up, so I have to use a coil spring.
If you’re interested I have more pictures on my website www.daytonwooddesign.com
