We had part of the family over on sunday for a barbeque, no harm in that, but then Bronwyn looks though a book of wooden toy designs. :? So I get a commission. :shock: Barbie needs a picnic table. 8-[ Well of course grandad just can't refuse. :roll:
So here is the timber machined up from the scraps left over from making folding chairs.

Assemble progressed quite quickly. 8)

I did have to make a jig for repeat drilling of the 1mm holes for the small nails I used to reinforce the joints with. (Its OK Tony didn't have the © on this one :eek: )

When I got to fitting the legs the new bench came into is own, clamping into the centre well was very useful.

The tricky bit was fixing the seat bars on to the legs and then adding the braces, but spacers saved the day and the table was completed.

A quick coat of oil, it will have two more before delivery and I think its looks quite smart. \:D/

I don't think I will be going in to production as the tuit box looks a bit bare. :-({|=

Nice table but I would have made it from pink ivory or brazilian purpleheart as all Barbie's things are pink :wink:

P.S. don't forget the hole for the sun shade!

Ahhh, that's nice. How long before someone suggests you make them a full size one in three days...? 8-[ :lol:

Cheers, Alf

Dave,

If you hadn't said it was for Barbie and you had not included scaleable items for comparison you could have fooled me!

It looks good, Dave. If I was just a couple of years younger, I'd be in the market for one of those :whistle: :oops: .

Dave, Sweet of you to do it....Luckily I don't have any girls still left at home to see it...and want one. I did have a thought when I saw the completed pic. That could be a marketable item there.....as is for the little ladies or with a bit of support and a hole in the center to fit a nice size flowerpot for the older ladies.....

I can confirm that it looks as good int the um, wood (I was going to type "flesh", but then it ain't so I didn't) as it does the the pictures as Dave took it to the show on Saturday.
