My first project is a baby cradle. We are expecting our first in April, so should be plenty of time. Though who knew it took so long to get those edges square! I am taking an introductory wood working class, so thankfully each time I have no idea how to proceed, the instructor is there with some tips and guidance.
It started with a board…
Squared (oof – who knew that would take so long!) Cut to length..Glued…Planed to proper depth.
Rockers cut with bandsaw and shaped with router… It only took me half way through to realize they had to be identical, to keep the baby from tipping over!
Next step…. sanding rockers and then shaping the base.
