This style of kids chairs are very easy to make and will not cost you a lot of money. If you are wanting a rustic look then this will work nice for you. To get this rustic look we used pine, then used a good walnut stain.
You can glue and clamp them together or you can use pocket screws and reduce the glue up time, either way we found both ways works fine
Kids Chairs Cut List
All wood used are 2 1/2" wide and knotty pine. To make sanding easier we recommend using a round over bit on all edges before cutting to size.
Glue up the front legs of the kids chairs. if you like you can use pocket screws on the back side. This will speed up drying times
The back and legs of the kids chairs are one piece and if you use pocket screws then you will need to put plugs in the holes because they will be exposed.
Once the back is finished you can attach the back and side apron. The top of the apron will be 11" to the bottom
After the apron is attached to the back you now attach the front legs to the front of the apron.
The kids chairs finished frame, as you can see the screws on the front of the legs are exposed. This adds to the rustic look when finish. Make sure you counter sink the screw holes so the top of the screws are flush
Place the slats for the seat on the chair frame, drill a pilot hole for the screws and counter sink them. Then we used a 1/2" dowel rod for a spacer between the slats, shoot the screws in to the chair frame and make sure the screws are flush . Now the chair is ready for stain
