Got away from train cars and made this chair for a little girls 3rd B-Day, it is made from using the original chair as a pattern, that was made for my mother-in-law around 1930 when she was a little girl by her father, he made it out of scraps of pine. I made this out of pine also, but it was from a single board instead of scrape pieces fitted together.

Very, very cool. Small, humble pieces like these are priceless.

If it weren’t for the finish coming off the original, it’d be hard-pressed to tell which one is which!

Nice job, I’m sure the little girl will LOVE IT!

G’Day “nitewalker”,
Very nice change, it does seem harder to make nice toys for little girls.
Two questions please..
What is the finish/stain on the pine and the dimensions of the chair, thank you.
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie
