For the last year my two and half year old daughter, has been “helping” in the kitchen and I really needed to just get her off the floor with the various random semi-non-destructive tasks. Whether those tasks be banging pots, shucking corn, or obliterating fruit.

Here is a miniature table, so she can continue to help me in the kitchen. She cuts various vegetables for what seems like a few moments, then runs away only to come back later to continue to assist in the food preparation process. Her attention wanders like the wind, but its nice to have.

Its about 20” inches tall X maybe 30 inches long X 12 inches wide. The legs are tapered and curved, and are actually recycled from an older dining table. The top is a cut off from the kitchen cabinet she is standing in front of, that I made a few of years ago before I joined Lumber Jocks. I got the idea for the height from a toy kitchen she plays with at school.

The legs are doweled straight into the top with 9 dowels each, and apron is screwed to the legs and top. Its finished with a few coats of spray poly.

Thanks to the guys in the forums for helping me learn how to construct and glue this up next time:

I thought the unthinkable for an instant, then quickly realized you meant a table that a toddler could use for cutting things. Whew!!! ;)
