Child size table and chairs

Submitted by kbates05 on Sat, 10/15/2011 - 16:55

Table was a little tricky for me and the wood kept splitting and the legs didn't seem very sturdy. The wood I have isn't the straightest so that gave me some trouble. Changed the dimensions of the table to 24" x 36" and used a lodge pole pine board so the top is a solid piece instead of the 1x8's keep the junk from collecting between the slats. The chair was pretty easy to build and my kids just love it. Thinking I will paint the table and chairs a high gloss white so it is scrub able and look good in our house.
