CubeChairs

Filed under: Woodworking — thefusionguy @ 12:41 am

Here’s some CubeChairs I made for my great-niece and the children of two of my wife’s colleagues. They’re white pine, finished with Minwax wipe-on polyurethane. This is a time-tested design, and my kids used them for years. The chairs start as doll chairs, then chairs for the kids (the seat has two heights), then a stool to reach the toothbrush, then a stool to assist with cooking. In between they’ve been trains, tea party table and chair, and lent early walking assistance. Pine is nice because it’s so soft and mildly colored that it seems very friendly. Now they assist those short of stature in reaching books on the top shelf.
