On January 26, 2011 my son Joseph was born at 5:03 AM. He is 7 lbs 1 oz and 20 1/2 in. long. I thought about posting a project post, but I technically only had to “work the wood” (if you know what I mean, heh heh) for about 5 minutes on this one so I didn’t think it counted :D

I’m going to go take a nap now.

Five minutes, did that include cuddle time. He looks like a happy health boy. So now you can buy tools for your son and of course test them out for him. Congrats.

This is going to be one of the best, if not the best project you have ever made. But spend a lot more time with him from here on He is a very handsome lad. Looks just like his mother. lol
Congratulations to the new Mommy and Daddy. Rand

I recognize the species. One of my favorites !!

About the joinery: I’m assuming … ligaments and tendons ??? Those L&T joints are classic.

You done good ! Let the fun begin :-)
