no previous part Part 1 of Baby Crib series no next part

Got back in the shop after a little unwanted break due to my other work. I now have both sides of the baby crib assembled. All that remains on them is the trim accent and the top caps. Then the sides shouldn’t take that long. Hopefully within the next week and a half I should have it ready to finish. I’ve added some pictures of the two sides in the current stage, as well as the lumber I milled down to thickness today for the top caps and the accent pieces.

Crib Side Panels

Lumber waiting for me

The plan is to get that stack of lumber into final pieces tomorrow, as well as get the top and bottom rails for the sides milled and dadoed. Then get the rest of the slats completed over the weekend and put this project to bed (no pun intended). Already thinking about a design for the summer awards. Was there ever any ruling on whether glue would be allowed or not? Don’t have a feel one way or the other, just want to play by the rules.

Until next time…happy sawdust makin’ y’all.

Great start on the crib. Keep it coming.
