Latt table equipped

Latt children's table

Materials: Latt, Bygel rail and container

I used clear water based varnish to make the table and chair washable. Then I added the Bygel rail and containers on one side of the table.

I also applied knobs made of wood for my handmade magazine rack made of blue polycarbonate.

    Hi, I love how you kept it simple! I was wondering if you sanded it before applying the clear varnish. And is there a particular varnish that you recommend? I’m new to wood work so any insight would be helpful. Thank you!

    the little child is the best part. What a darling spirit. And the desk is so creative and just the right height for your child. Good job. I see this table and accessories as an heirloom to hand down through the family. Blessed New Year to you and yours.
