Baby High Chair Plans
PLATE XIV. A very convenient form of a wooden baby's chair is given in complete detail in these plans. It consists of an arm chair, furnished with a rest for the feet of the baby, and a tray or table on which food or toys can be laid as desired. This table has a raised edging to prevent things being easily pushed off, and is pivoted to the back, so that it can be turned over the same and dropped behind the chair when not required : this arrangement is indicated by the dotted lines in the side view of the chair, Fig. 2.
The form of the table is shown in the top view, Fig. 3 ; in which are also shown the attachment of the table to the back legs, the arms on which the table rests, and the dished seat of the chair. Fig. 4 shows the manner in which the table rests on the arms, and the small slip-bolt necessary to fix the tray so that the baby cannot lift it. Fig. 5 illustrates the manner in which the side bars of the tray are pivoted to the upper parts of the back legs: a strong screw and brass washer, and a button of hardwood or thick sole-leather forming the pivot for each side bar, as indicated in Fig. 3.
Figs. 6 and 7 show the manner in which the seat is notched into the legs, and securely fixed to the same with sunk screws; the outer holes for which are filled with small turned studs, as shown in Fig. 7. The front view of the complete chair is given in Fig. i.
The chair may be made of any of the hard woods and should be finished with a durable oil varnish. This finish is especially necessary for the table.
