Building furniture for a child is a special pleasure for a woodworker. And because kids need safe and durable furniture sized to their needs, furniture for them presents special challenges, too.
Childrens Furniture Projects provides a mix of projects that has something for woodworkers of all skill levels. The ten projects - ranging from a fanciful rocking dinosaur to sturdy childrens beds -- are designed to help make the childrens room as well furnished as any other room in the house. Many of these projects have knockdown construction, which makes the pieces easy to store once they are outgrown. Detailed step-by-step instructions and photos explain how to construct durable furniture that will last a whole childhood, including:
- an elegant rocking cradle
- a chair that doubles as a toy
- a solid heirloom crib
- a Tyrannosaurus rocker
- an ample and practical toy chest
Projects range from infants to teenagers - each looks as smart as any shop bought item.
