Shaker child’s chair, cherry
Made for our granddaughter’s second birthday, the seat height is nine inches, the rear leg height is 19 inches. To darken the cherry, the assembled frame was exposed to direct sunlight for several days before finishing with two coats of Minwax Antique Oil Finish, followed by coats of an oil/varnish mixture rubbed on with fine steel wool. Chair leans back two degrees. Seat is woven with 5/8″ wide cloth tape. Her name is Violet, hence the colors and the “V” woven into the seat.
