If I don’t get a lot done in the next couple evenings, this will be a mute point I know. But, I was wondering if you guys would consider my crib able to be entered in the contest. I’ve never entered anything yet and thought it’d be a neat side note to the crib story.

The lumber is all from my wife’s uncle. Him and his father milled it 20 plus years ago. We helped him haul a bunch of good quality lumber out of a place he rented to his farm. After that was finished, he said we could have what ever we wanted out of what was left. Anything we didn’t take was going to the burn pile.

Do you think my crib would make it under the “junk” classification? The lumber should, but the hardware I did buy new for the crib.

I say yes. That way, if you enter it and win, someone can make the determination at that time if it qualifies. If you don’t enter it, like you said, moot point.

Well, if he was going to burn the wood, it sounds like one man’s junk to me. It’s a great crib and all the better if made from throw-away lumber.
