Juvenile Kitchen Set

Here is the orginal article straight from
Book No. 4557, 40 Fine DELTA Tables

Uses Trylon and Perisphere Motif in Corner Brackets THIS makes up nice in oak with a buff lacquer finish, as suggested on the opposite page.
However, any other finish can he used. It would be quite nice in colored lacquer or paint. The height dimensions given will fit the average youngster up to about seven yews old.
Over this age, the chairs can be increased to a 14 or 15-inch seat level, and the table to 24 to 26 inches. Start work by making the legs. These we 11/4 inches square for the chairs, and P/2 inches square for the table. Corners are shaped with style D knife, using either the circular saw moulding head or shaper. The round on the outer corner is run in with style B knife. The D knife is used for various other edges, as can be seen in the drawing.
Drill dowel holes in back centers while work is square then saw to circular shape on band saw. The general construction features of both chair and table follow standard practice. Chair seats we imitation red leather, fitted to a base of 1/4 inch plywood which is fastened by means of screws inserted through the corner cleats. The table top is 3/4 inch plywood, covered with red linoleum and edged with a chromium nosing. The flange of the nos. ing is cut away at the corners to permit bending to the 11/4 inch radius specified. An optional treatment using red oilcloth or leather with a wood edging is shown. Brackets for the table are cut from 'A inch oak plywood, and carry out the ball and spike motif of the World's Fair. The upper edge of the circle is let into the rail. The other edge butts against the leg and is fastened with brads and glue. It should be noticed in the construction of the chairs that the round circles of wood which make up the centers of the backs we drilled for the dowel rods while the work is in the square. After the hole! we drilled, the shape can be cut on the band saw.
