DIY Baby High Chair Plans for Free

  1. Study the diagrams included with the plans carefully looking for indications that the baby chair you plan to build will be easy to keep clean.  Trust me that the wood will at some point be painted with carrots, peas with a little mashed potatoes and gravy for good measure. 
  2. Determine if the design seems sturdy enough to withstand several years of use by a wiggling, active baby who may or may not be happy sitting in the seat while everyone else is seated in a "grown-up" chair.
  3. Novices to woodworking should check the required skill level listed on the blueprints.   Wooden high chair plans for beginners should not have complicated joints and turnings.

Measurements and Specs of the Baby High Chair Woodworking Plans
The measurements listed in the plans should provide the width and height of the finished piece.

The finished chair should be such that it will fit underneath a standard height dining room table so that when the baby is older she can sit at the table and enjoy her meal with the family. Most high chair plans feature legs that can easily be adjusted to accommodate the height of most tables. Remember to measure from the floor to the underneath of the table not the surface of the table's top.

What kind of wood is best for making a wooden high chair?
Most of the woodworking experts recommend oak above all other hardwoods but said that pretty much any hardwood would be fine. One expert said that pine and other softwoods are prone to split and splinter making joining and routing a problem.

How much wood will I need to make a baby high chair?
You will need to refer to your woodworking plans to get exact measurements and always buy a few extra boards just in case. Some of the free plans that were highly recommended required 24 running feet of framing wood and 4 feet of material wide enough to build the seat of the high chair and a tray.
