Finally got a few items finished and posted up on Etsy! Back by popular demand is my Kids Flat Pack Plywood Rocking Chair (named “For those who like to Rock!”)suitable for ages 18 months to 5 year olds (for average sized kids). I love this design and plan to make more of these over the summer to keep up with demand. New to the store is the Chunky Monkey, an end grain Pine Cutting board that’s just over 2.25″ thick! There are two versions with slightly different handholds on the ends. Both boards feature rubber feet to help grip the counter as well as a food safe mineral oil finish. Why Pine? Well Pine has some natural anti-bacterial properties that make it perfect for cutting board use, and by making it end grain the soft wood is plenty durable for cutting board use. Boards come with simple maintenance instructions.
52 Create, my weekly creative output for 2011. I guaranteed something more ambitious this week, and here it is! I call it “For those who Like to Rock”. It’s a flat pack rocking chair made out of baltic birch plywood. It’s sized for a toddler (1.5-4 years) and assembles without and glue or screws. I’ve had several different variations of this in my many sketchbooks, and I even made a prototype a few years back, however this is a full finished product.
This rocking chair is now for sale on my Etsy Site, feel free to stop by and make a purchase….
