A friend of mine has a very young handicapped child. The child is in a strap-in walker that is currently 23 inches high. As she grows, walker height will change.
He would like to build her a table that will allow the walker to slide underneath and allow her comfortable access to the top. I think a trestle style table would be a good choice, as the legs would be less in the way. As far as height, I’m looking for a solution that may allow the table to grow with her.
My idea: Build a two piece adjustable leg assembly, with a bottom tenon, and a top mortise, and through pegs that can be knocked out to allow adjustment. This would work in much the same way as those folding tables with metal legs you see at parties or conferences. I would probably use multiple pegs on each side to help distribute the weight. Would this work, and should it be safe? Is there a better solution?
