I built this chair as a prototype for one I intend to give to the school for their fundraiser. It is based on the design from Jeff Miller’s book on children’s furniture. Made from walnut that I had laying around. I finished it with Tru-oil a product that gun guys seem to like.

Can’t figutre out how to rotate the picture. It is correct on my computer.

I love the look of the chair and the idea with a marble track. Could you also make one that had the marble travel to one of the front legs then to the other side and back to the other back leg or so?
