Topic tags/keywords: question furniture children

fellow LJ’s,
My granddaughter has outgrown her first play table and chair so I need to upgrade. My question is: (1)are there any standard furniture dimensions for munchkins between the age of 5-11 yrs. (I hope to make this one large enough to last for at least 5 years), and (2) do you have any recommendations for chair joinery that will take the punishment of a head on adolescent?

-- Greg, No. Cal.

Jeff Miller has a good book on children’s furniture. Jeff gives not only the designs but talks about safety standards for children’s furniture.

Thanks for the advise on Jeff Miller. I just requested his book from my library.
