Thread: High Chair?

  1. #1

    High Chair?

    Has anyone ever made a high chair for a toddler? I'm trying to find some good plans and not having much luck.

    Thanks!

    A fellow in France that I know of built a version of the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair.


    Most of the chair is really quite straightforward. We have a real one which Ian has used since he could sit up. We never had a "proper" high chair for him. the nice thing is that it acan be adjusted as the child grows.

    If you wanted, I suppose I could take some measurements and do a SketchUp drawing of it.

    Dan,
    Woodworkers Journal, Aug. 2004 - Volume 28 No.4 has detailed plans for an Oak High chair. This one has an optional antarsia teddy bear on the back of the seat, but could be built with or without it.
    Construction is dowel and biscuits.. looks like a nice chair. It was designed by Bruce Kieffer from ST. Paul, according to the article. Here is his website with the chair on it.

    Dave, that is quite the contraption! Thanks for the post but I think I'm looking for something a little more traditional.
    Doug, thank you so much for this link. I think this will be great if I can get a hold of the archives....

    Thanks again!

    I've built one for my daughter - total self design, but simple construction.

    The only problem is the 3 leg base. It's been OK so far, but it's not going to be 100% stable as the little one grows. This weekends project is build a larger base for it, just some extra support in the front 45 deg directions. No big crash yet.. just want to make sure there isn't one

    Cheers

    Ian

    Try this link. http://picasaweb.google.com/mrhermit03/HighChair
    These are a couple of high chairs I made for the two grand kids.
    They were made from using two different sets of plans. I did not like either one, but I took parts from each plus my ideas and this is what I came up with.

    Hi Tom. Welcome to family Woodworking.

    I don't think Stokke offers plans for the Tripp Trapp chair since it is something they make themselves. Still....

    Dave,

    THAT IS SO COOL!!!!

    If you can draw up even some rough plans, I'll make one for James! I'll even drop Doorlink's cabinets to do it!

    Thanks,

    Bill
