How To Make Log Toddler Table And Chairs
Toddler Table and Chairs – Building your own table and chairs can give you a sense of satisfaction when you sit down to eat. As long as you trust your own work, you can end up with a set of durable furniture. Using logs will spin the construction process, because you will need strong arms and a steady hand to use an axe. But the rustic and homemade feel of a table and chairs (bench style) made of logs cannot reproduce the typical furniture set of a furniture.
Part the wood for the top of the toddler table and chairs. Place one of your wedges at a 45-degree angle on one end of a smaller trunk, about 11 inches (27.9 cm) in diameter. Place the second wedge in the crack made in the trunk until you can remove the first wedge. Repeat and continue this process until the trunk is completely broken. Divide the wood into 4 equal parts to make 4 chairs. If desired, remove the bark in this step. Drill the holes for the legs of the chairs. Use the 1-inch (2.54 cm) clamp and drill bit to fully drill the split log pieces, making four holes in which to hold the “legs” to each chair.

Make the legs of the toddler table and chairs. For each chair, part 4 pieces 3 inches by 3 inches (7.6 cm by 7.6 cm) of a 20-inch (20-inch) diameter trunk. Give them the shape of even legs to pieces. Carve one end of each leg in the shape of a rounded spike so that it fits inside one of the 1 inch (2.54 cm) holes of the legs. Cut a slot 4 inches (10.2 cm) deep to the carved ends of each trunk. With the deck, stick the legs in the holes.
Build wedges to attach the legs of chair for the toddler table and chairs. For each chair, part four wedges of the central heartwood of a trunk. The wedges should be at least 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide, 1/16 inches thick (about 0.15 cm) and 6 inches (15.2 cm) high. Carve each wedge so that it has a light edge at one end and polishes any rough areas. Use a hammer to nail a wedge into the hole at the top of each leg. When in place, cut the ends of the flush legs with the top of the chair and trim the lower ends of the legs if necessary. Repeat these steps to build the 4 chairs.
Build the table. To do it, it uses the same basic technique as for chairs, but on a larger scale. Construct a table with a divided surface when splitting a larger trunk, which is as wide in diameter as you want your table to be. Follow the steps above to make the table surface the same way you made the seat for each chair. Assemble and join the table legs using the wedge method described above to make chair legs. When you finish making the toddler table and chairs, sand all the rough edges and apply finish or varnish to your liking.
