    Kids Table & Chairs

    Here is the first project out of the shop. the wife wanted a table and chairs for the kids. Made it from red oak, finished with 3 coats of Watco Danish Oil and 4 coats of satin poly. I had a couple stair treads that I used for the table top. It should hopefully withstand their abuse.

    The table is 20" high, 23" deep and 36" long. The chairs backs are 29" tall and the seat is 12" x 12" with the top of the seat bottom 12" from the ground.


    Pre-finished



    Finished







    The happy customers







    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Regards,

    Randy

    Great looking table and chairs! and your boys love it as it shows on their faces.

    You'd better start planning the new one, because they grow so fast!

    That looks like a great set. Cool use of the treads. The boys seem taken with it too.

    Great looking set! This might be the first project out of the shop, but it can't be YOUR first. Well done!
