I had a pattern give to me that was not all there. Then I found one on the internet used part of that one. Put a few tweaks on it and this is the results.
It is a highchair, rocker, and a desk. I have used a good grade of birch plywood and painted it. I have learned a lot about painting something I don’t like to do, personally I would rather clean toilets than paint. I tell people about the chair and I don’t get much reaction but when they see one it’s another story. Every time I have shown one of these chairs I get an order for one.

I think it’s ingenious. Someday I hope to have a grandchild who will need one. At 14, my daughter’s too old for it.

Dusty I ordered the pattern on line from “The Winfield Collection”.

I changed the seat and horse head on mine but the basic concept is the same.
