This chair was made for our cousin's brand new granddaughter, Shyann. I found the plans on Rockler's website and they were so easy to use, even for a novice woodworker like myself. I made this out of pine boards and poplar dowels. I modified it just a bit using some pocket holes and making the inside of the ears in the same fashion as the snout. Her granddad, aunt, and mom loved it and I was pleased with the whole experience.
