About This Project

My wife has always been a huge fan of Ana White's website, and we've wanted to start making some of the projects now that our children are a bit older (5 yrs., 3yrs., 5 mos.). Plus, after finishing my Ph.D., I've finally found the time to begin woodworking as a hobby--and I love it!!!

This was our first project together. I did the building, and my wife completed the painting. The kids love the table, which we use as a breakfast and snack table for them.

Ana's plan was wonderfully simple and clear, and the materials were inexpensive and purchased at our local small town lumber store.

My only suggestion for others interested in building this project to be a food table is to consider using a solid piece of wood for the tabletop and perhaps the same for the chairs. We are constantly cleaning food gunk out of the seams between the joined tabletop planks. I imagine that this will require a bit more work for the chairs, but with little kids who make horrible messes with their food.

Blessings,
JB
