Hi there! I'm thinking of a solid wooden high chair for my little son, do you know what are popular nowadays? I need one easy to clean and adjustable for different age. Or maybe you know where to get a DIY how to make up such chair. Thanks!

I think the easiest thing to do is search the internet images and find one you like and work from that. I have no experience of making a high chair and that is where I would start.

Sorry can't be any more help than that

So I decided to update my post in case if someone will be faced with the same issue. First I wanted to find a DIY for a chair but then my wife told it wouldn't be safe as I'm not a professional. After a bit of arguing we decided to buy a new one after all. Well, I've been looking for a high chair which my wife would like and it was a bit hard to deal with it but we did. After reading dozens of forums and posts like this one (a pretty good one detailed review) **LINK** we decided to buy Graco 6 in 1 chair ajustable and easy to clean. Now my wife is happy, my son is happy, that's the main point. You can change the reclining position, the backheight and footrest so this chair will grow with my buddy. Hope this will help anyone!

Hello George, You are probably going down the best route, whilst it is is always good to show-off

the things that you have made, I think a lot of skill will be needed.It's been half-a-century since

I needed one and I seem to remember that the end-user (baby) used to get it in an atrocious mess

best dealt with via a pressure washer, whilst plastic has no hidden places to secrete food to ferment,

good luck to you no matter what route you take.

Derek.
