U-Bild project: Mealtime is family time

Don and Dave Runyan have plans for a high chair.
BY Don and Dave Runyan Published: December 24, 2012

Gathering around the table for a meal each day is important for every member of the family, no matter how young or old. That's why this family friendly high chair project leaves out the tray that used to keep little ones in the “second row” at meal time. Now babies and toddlers can slide right up to the dinner table with everyone else.

Featuring a safe, sturdy and comfortable design, the project has rounded edges and corners, and all screws are recessed and plugged. Cutouts in the seat allow easy access for little legs, and straps keep everything safe and secure.

The high chair is as inexpensive as it is easy to build, requiring just two small sheets of plywood. Construction is simple. First, trace all the pieces onto plywood, cut everything out and sand. Next, assemble the chair using glue, dowels and screws and apply finish of choice. Finally, attach the safety straps. The included teddy bear design can be traced and painted or burned into the wood, or the builder can personalize the project as desired.

The high chair stands 28 inches high by 18 inches wide by 19 inches deep.

The High Chair plan, No. 820, is $9.95 and includes step-by-step instructions with photos, full-size traceable patterns, a complete shopping list and cutting schedule and a toll-free help line for project questions.

A package of four plans for children's furniture, No. C79, is $24.95 and includes a rocking chair, toy chest, table and desk. Please include $4.00 per order (not per item) for postage and handling and allow about two weeks for delivery.
