A Child's Desk

P1011704.jpg

Built for my most exacting customer...

My niece is two and a half. She likes Peppa Pig, crying, hiding in cardboard boxes and drawing. Now I've not got much patience for kids' TV, I leave the cardboard boxes to my cats, and I've tried crying at the niece and all it did was make her cry harder. But drawing - I can help with that. Built from 18mm birch ply, with an integrated soft-close device to save her little fingers. This was also the first time I used the raw Osmo oil, which preserves the very light, natural look of the wood.

 Ink wells? What are those? Still, I'm keeping up with the kids. This looks a bit like the winky emoji.
