Addison is already here as most of you already know ( and doing just fine). I’ve been really busy since we returned home from Addison arrival trying to get the crib finished up. I actually finished it up the weekend after we got back, but I’ve to busy to get things posted. The changing table is in finish right now and I’ve been busy with that to. They came up this weekend for the holidays and are going to take the changing table back with them to Texas. Then when finish is on the crib I’ll be taking it down soon to.
Okay let’s get the build finishd up here. This first two pictures is the the two top slat rails being glued up. All the slats were mortised into the top and bottom rails. And remeber you can click on the picture to see the whole thing, I haven’t figured out to how to re-size them yet.
Then all the hardware was mounted to the crib end frames for the slat rails. The slat rails got installed next.
After the slat rails were installed then the whole thing was taken apart. I fit the bottom molding on the crib ends and the bottom of the stationary rails. After that I re-attached each rail to the end of the crib sides one at a time. The bottom molding was sanded in so it matched up perfectly. The bead on the crib side was also cut into match up with the bead on the bottom rail and the reeded feet were also attached at this time.
There was still some sanding to finish up after this, but the build is now complete. Here’s a last picture on the crib end completed and ready for finish.
I’m not going to fully assemble the crib again until after finish so you’ll have to wait to see it all together till then.
Thanks once again to everyone that has followed with me and my newest Grand Baby Addison Rose of Texas and the building the of her crib. Its been a fun journey and yes I’m tired. ;o) I think I’ll go in and put the changing table all together in the morning and take the rest of this weekend off.
Thanks again Les.
