I know I’ve been sorta “slackin”. It’s been a bit since I’ve posted anything. This really isn’t nothing, except, to make myself feel better about gettin back out in the shop, I think. :) Anyhoo, just a stack o 25+ year old Walnut that’s hopefully gonna clean up to be a 3 in 1 Crib for my newest Grandson. The base plans are the ones from Wood Magazine back in ‘98. I’ll make a few changes here n there.

I’m a bit behind, but, lotsa stuff always happens at the wrong time. I started cleaning up some o this fine Walnut

Thnx for the looks, and, good/bad/ugly comments. Well appreciated. Work/Play safe….........Keep makin dust.

Hi, Grandpa! :D I bet it is going to be awesome! (Are you putting a “Harley” logo on it??) You have to start them young you know!

I can’t wait to see the progress. It will not only feel good to get back into the shop, but for such a meaningful project, too!

Have a great night! Sheila

Thnx everyone. I really appreciate your input/s and thoughts. @ Greg :) oh yea, the grin on the chin with this beautiful Walnut. It’s some of the same stuff that I made that table & chairs with a while back. @Sheila: hummmmmmm ???? Thnk u. @U. Stump: This wood was stored in a barn in southern KY, for over 25 yrs. A friend of my sons father sold his farm a couple o years ago, and had to reduce. I actually am a big ole gorde…. (I think that’s what I mean)... I wound up getting an abundance of Walnut, Cherry, and Red & White Oak mix…. I need to get busy….

Roger, I passed on the 3 in 1 and started planning a build on a twin bed. I figured I’d Git-R-Done before she got out of college….. (maybe)
