There is nothing like catching a cold and having sinus headaches and coughing and sneezing all week to put a speed bump in your woodworking projects. Not to mention the daylight savings took away an hour in the shop. My goal was to get all of the slats measured and cut this week. Mission failed. I did finish all of the mortises on the front bottom rail and got the slats dry fitted.
Finished the day by cutting out the side rails and worked on the top front rail. Since this is a sleigh style crib the trick with the front rail involved ripping with the blade tilted at a 4 degree angle and ripping three 1 1/2” wide pieces and gluing up to create the curve. Will add a 1 1/2” dowel rod to complete the sleigh look. Will also have to repeat the entire process for the back top rail as well.
