Built from wood salvaged from a cabinet found at the local landfill. There was alot of firsts in this one. Besides being for my first grandchild it also was my first chair and first time attempting the mortise and tenon joints. Quit a challenge with all the angles.

Nice bite at the apple, Mike. Congrats on the grandchild. (I only became a grandfather myself a little while ago.)
Not bad for an old guy. :)

Wow that is a nice piece of work. Great series of “first” for you. I’d like to try some of that too – but not the grand child – not yet!!
