This practical high chair is designed like the old fashioned ones -- sturdy. The footrest is adjustable and the tray is removable. No special hardware is needed, though a safety belt of some sort is recommended. Through-doweling makes for ease in construction. The seat height is 22", overall height is 38-1/2". Even though we consider this to be an intermediate level project, a grandpa or dad who is a beginner in woodworking (with the proper motivation) can probably make a go of this project.
SPECIAL TIP: Remember to let ANY baby furniture which has been stained plenty of time to "air out" before turning the piece over to the new parents (usually 30 days).
This is a blueprint style plan which is heralded by beginners and experts alike as being a pleasure to work from because all parts are printed in full size -- all joinery is shown in actual size, curved workpieces are all in full size, therefore you can measure and trace straight from the drawing if necessary. A bill of materials doubles as an exact cutting list, there is a detailed exploded diagram, and all hardware requirements are provided. The exploded diagram so detailed that project specific assembly instructions are not provided. A special booklet entitled Guide to Building Wood Furniture is included with each Furniture Designs, Inc. plan and includes many tips explaining the "component theory" of woodworking.
