This is Tabi’s Adirondack Style Chair. When a grandchild turns two, I build a theme chair based on their current interest. I think Tabitha is developing an interest in arts and crafts. The chair features many components made on the lathe.This is the firth chair that I have made. Each one is challenging and so much fun to make. The kids looks forward to their second birthday to see what grandpa will come up with. I have a feeling these chair may become family heirlooms. I can see the care and joy they get from their chairs.
The seat is a series of pencils. The back is a series up of giant paint brushes. The arms are paint tubes with dripping paint. The side rails feature artist pallets. And the arm supports are a giant colored pencil and a Number 2 drawing pencil.
We will see if she follows the interest of her Mother and Grandfather. At least, I do know that she loves this Tabi’s Adirondack Style Chair. Looking forward to seeing Tabi develop her artistic expression.
Here is the link to a chair I made for my Grandson Jack. Not difficult to guess what his interest is.https://www.aaturning.com/2014/06/12/jacks-chair/
