    High Chair Plans- Help!!

    I've gone through the depths of every wood working forum and google search possible. I have found a few people who have made this high chair however the plans are NOWHERE to be found. The high chair is called the Tripp Trapp by Stokke.



    I wanted to see if anyone has built or knows where i can find the plans for this High chair?? The overall build doesn't seem difficult but I need to get the measurements and cuts right so that the brand accessories will fit. Thanks!

    This chair is called a Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair and in manufactured https://www.stokke.com/USA/en-us/144425.html
    No help, I know, but it could be why there are no plans to be found.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    Do you use SketchUp? If so, here are 8 versions of that chair. You should be able to get enough details to build it.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    Looks like this one offers the most details in terms of measurements and joinery.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    This funky high chair is not straightforward woodworking! If you really like it just buy one online for about $350 (it'll cost you at least that much to buy the hardware plus the aggravation to build it). Or just buy a regular old high chair!

    I took a quick look at the SketchUp Warehouse model that Bill suggested and got the general dimensions from a Stokke TripTrapp link. Many accessories and most of the hardware screws, bolts, and steel rods are available as accessories at the Stokke website. The steel rods appear to be drilled at each end and tapped for a machine screw. I don't like them and would use wood joinery.

    https://www.stokke.com/USA/en-us/hig...rapp/1444.html

    The cut angles are marked 22.5 degrees and 67.5 degrees for the basic frame and the foot support and seat are 3/4" t seated in dados. I think that I'd go to one of the stores to see this chair assembled. Maybe easier to just buy a plain old high chair and forget about building one with a wacky design and joinery.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    I hope it comes with some accessories to keep the baby in place. That looks like instant baby on the floor. You'll need some sort of table or tray so the baby can smear his food around, some arm rests to restrain him side to side and a crotch strap to keep him from going down. YMMV but babies tend to be pretty active and need to be restrained.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    I think the restraint part is why the OP wants to match the commercial chair. It comes with a seat that the baby actually sits in that is attached to the frame.

    I don't think it looks bad at all to make. Looks like the bottom joint is a open mortise and tenon but it could probably be simplified to a lap joint if you want. The curved backrest could be laminated and bent but it could also just be sawed out on a bandsaw. Not much for materials in it. My daughter would not let me make a high chair for my grandson but if my son, who has no kids yet, lets me make on for his, this could be a candidate.

    Yes, it comes with an assortment of restraints and safety features...

    we like it. We use it for our 16 month old and then my 3 year old also uses it when the other is not. It’s nice when u take the front tray off and it becomes a booster that push up just right to the table. For my younger, u really have to use the straps for safety. Once the get to about 2, you don’t really need the straps anymore unless u are trying to keep them from standing up. The front tray is huge

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    Completely off topic, but I have built several of the Woodsmith high chairs. Simple build, and can be converted to a youth chair when tray is removed. Rockler carries all the hardware. I remember when our oldest grand daughter suddenly realized that her hips would no longer allow her to sit in hers.

    Not that I can find by searching Rockler.

    I couldn't find hardware in latest catalog, or web site. But by googling "Rockler high chair hardware" I found that it can be bought through Amazon. A call to Rockler most likely would find that they still stock hardware for high chair.

    Re: High Chair Plans- Help!!

    Thanks Bruce.

    I found this Amazon review of "Rockler High Chair Hardware". Not good, and wears out in about 2 years.

    Then this, which may be better.

    http://www.productsamerica.com/highchairhardware.html

    In any event, the OP who was hot to trot for high chair information hasn't responded to anything thats been posted so far.
