Custom Built Children's Furniture

September 13, 2010

I am a skilled carpenter and proud  father of 3 boys.  I started making furniture for my toddler twins from reclaimed materials and construction “waste” (i.e. perfectly good material that would have ended up in a dumpster).

If your kids are like mine then your young children have a budding sense of independence as soon as they are able to crawl and stand. As a parent I wanted to nurture my boys’ growing skills and minds without putting my children in harm’s way.  I love building pint sized furniture that either fit young toddlers or that they can grow into.  It gives them a safe way to feel competent and independant as they learn new skills and practice others.


If you are interested in commissioning furniture, a miniature home, or, play structures you can learn more at my Web site.

Little house

Small homes and play structures teach children important lessons about caring for their home and are an important prop in any child’s imagination. Probably all of us remember a fort, tree house, or another play structure where we would stash our toys, hide from evil invaders, or pester elder siblings. A miniature house provides a special and safe place just for your child.

Solid wood tables and chairs, built to their specific dimensions allow children to sit up straight with their feet flat on the floor. There they can draw, play, and eat at their very own table and in their very own chair – just like mom and dad. Not only does this help your children develop good posture, but it will allow them a safe way to foster a sense of competence.

Eastside Family Co-op Rummage Sale and Open house

May 12, 2010

Saturday, May 15th, 9am-3pm
Eastside Family Co-op is having a huge 20-family rummage sale!

Kettler Tricycle, Medela Breast Pump, Britax Car Seat, Maclaren Stroller, BRAND NEW kitchen supplies, baby clothes, maternity clothes, kid clothes, furniture, toys, books, games, puzzles, TV, snowshoes, baby gear, and much, much more!

We'll also have an open house  between 10am and 12pm  for interested families to come take a look at our space and talk to current members.

We are a group of families who have come together to provide quality, part-time childcare for our children. For most of our children, Eastside Family Co-op is their first early school experience and serves as a pre-preschool.

Our children are aged 18 months to about 31/2 years old (when most kids move on to more traditional preschools) in one large, mixed-age classroom. Children typically start between the ages of 18 months to 2 ½ years and stay for at least one year.

Eastside Family Co-op is entirely parent-run. Each child attends three days: two days "on her own" and one day with her "parent teacher."

Check out our website for more information about our program.  http://www.eastsidefamilycoop.org/

Looking for ecofriendly infant seat

October 24, 2009

Hello Urban Mamas!

I am looking for an ecofriendly infant seat, one that does not say that it was inspected by the California bureau of home furnishings (the bureau sprays fabrics with fire retardant chemicals).

Does anyone have ideas? I would just love an environmentally safe seat that my baby could have fun sitting in while I play, read and sing with her.

Looking for a Wooden Kitchen Set

October 11, 2008

I am looking for a Wooden Children's kitchen set for my little Apple.  She's growing up and I would love for her to get into "cooking".  I personally don't need to buy a brand-new kitchen set for her but would rather find a used one that I can make our own.  Do you know of anyone who makes them or has one for sale?! Contact me please: earthfriendlymama {at} gmail {dot} com
