ID:	36490 Customer wanted me to refinish this little high chair, she's expecting next month. I thought is was an interesting piece. I'd estimate that it was built in the lat 30's or early 40's. It's made of oak. The original builder didn't take into account that the mom might want to lift the tray up all the way up to get the kiddle out. I took a little off of the insides of the arm so that it would clear the back. Finish is BLO and varnish.

    Looks real nice Don. You can get a seat belt/harness at Rockler. They may want to strap the little hellion in

    I remember being told to duck, and the consequences of not acting quick enough!
    Good job Don! Will it fold all the way back or only vertical now?

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
