Waldorf-style play stands for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. Made of white pine harvested from our yard and cherry for the wedges. Made primarily with hand tools, apart from some planing for the shelves and ripping to width for non-live edge parts. Finish is a single coat of poly/BLO wiping varnish, then buff with paste wax.

Nice. I really like the wedge tenons.

Interesting. Like the wedged through tenons also. What is it for, exactly? I’ve never heard of a play stand. Just to store toys on?

thank you!

google “waldorf play stand” – it’s basically an open-ended multi-purpose furniture for kids. I figure these ones are nice enough to be used as bookshelves once she’s older.

I’ll be building the canopy for it as a follow-up… it makes it into a pretty cool little structure for kids.

Have your say...
