Here is a finished shot the latest Highchair to come out of my shop. I’m very pleased with the natural finish. The contrast between the maple legs and the walnut seat really pops.
These Little chairs give kids a few extra inches of height, bringing them up to a comfortable dining level at the “grown up table”. Best of all the hands of the chair are low enough to fit under most tables so you can really slide them in nice and close to their plates..
The weather has been nearly perfect around here lately. Maybe a touch on the hot side but trust me, after this last winter, I’m not complaining one bit. The chickens and the garden (veg and flowers) are loving it, so it’s all good.
Here is a shot of the Highchair I was working on in my last post…
Currently on the workbench I have a nearly completed Curved leg stool. These little guys are a lot of fun to build and are perfect for bars, counter height dining areas and guitar playing..
All thats left to do with this one is to trim the leg tenons and scrape the seat to a fine surface with a card scraper. This is probably my favorite part of the chair making process and I can’t wait to get going on it. After that It’s Milk paint time!
As soon as I take some glamor shots of this stool I’ll post a few pictures.
First, I’m happy to announce that the garden is finally starting to come together. Tomatoes, peppers, beans, kale and cucumbers are in the ground. About a week later than I would have liked, but winter didn’t want to let go this year. Now I just have to keep the chickens out of it ’till the plants get a little bigger. Easier said than done I’m afraid.
And in the shop….Here’s a look at the Hoop Back rocker I was working on a couple of weeks ago.
I’m very pleased with how this little rocker turned out. It really is very comfortable, maybe one day I’ll make one for myself.
