Red Oak Crib #2: Completed Crib

840 days ago by Ehren | 4 comments »

I finally completed the Crib, have it assembled and it is in use. I got a couple questions about the mounting hard ware. The side pannels are removeable. They are supported by Mortise and tennon joints and a screw from the side pannel will lock into a threaded insert along the corner posts. I wanted to conceal as much hardware as I could, and the open part on the side pannels will be capped. The matress frame attaches directly to the corner posts to threaded inserts at four different...

Red Oak Crib #1: Red Oak Crib

857 days ago by Ehren | 9 comments »

I started this project when we found out we were expecting our first kid. After shopping and not finding anything I liked for the money so I set out to design my own. I wanted a crib that could be broke down and stored when not in use. I bought roughsawn red oak from a local mill an hour from my house. There were a couple things I tried in this project I have never tried before design wise. After trying them, some of those expiriments will not happen again. I tried to make it all part ...

Co Sleeper

I started this project when we found out we were expecting our first kid. After shopping and not finding anything I liked for the money so I set out to design my own. I wanted a light design and could be broke down and stored when not in use. I also didn’t find many other ideas out there so I hope this may inspire some more ideas. The idea is while he will still be nursing several times a night he can sleep safely next to the bed but not in it. I Used Red Oak and Walnut scrap...

PhotoBlog: How I designed and created the First Year Ornament

933 days ago by jimleigh1313 | 0 comments »

See HERE for completed project Recently, I bought a Grizzly bandsaw. One of the reasons I decided to buy a bandsaw was to re-saw lumber for use on a scroll saw. The scroll saw was my first ‘tool’ that I bought, and before, I was limited to purchased plywoods for my scroll saw cuts. I was quite surprised at how much wood can be obtained from a single length of wood when re-sawn. It will definitely expand my creativity for such projects. Outlined is the first such project ...

Well, as some may have seen, I recently finished building a bassinet for my upcoming child.

Below I’m posting a link to some pics of here as well as posting a pic here. Pictures of Maddison Sierra

Summer Months

2222 days ago by Olaf Gradin | 4 comments »

Northeast Georgia is already into the mid-90’s and sawdust just seems to cake onto everything now. My shop is not air-conditioned, though I do have a window fan that helps a bit. I say shop, but really I just mean “the place where my tools occupy floor space.” It’s the garage, and actually just a storage location at that. We’re planning to do some major work out there, but I’m running out of time. My wife and I are expecting a baby girl this November an...

Baby Furniture #1: Baby Furniture Adventure Begins

2233 days ago by Kevin | 6 comments »

My wife and I are expecting our first child to be born in the first part of September. I am going to attempt to build some baby furniture for him. I have never built any baby furniture and would love to get some ideas, suggestions, input from those that have. I think we have decided on building a crib. We haven’t decided on whether to build a convertible crib or just a regular crib. My first question is that when you change the convertible crib into a full size bed, what do you do...

Baby's First Furniture #1: Baby's First Furniture - The Plan.

2463 days ago by Bob_B | 1 comment »

My wife and I are expecting our first child in February. This after 2 years of trying. Needless to say, we are very excited. This, of course, is my chance to build some baby furniture and spend a little time in the shop that isn’t work related. No real deadlines, and the freedom to use all of the creativity I want. What could be better. There is one other reason I’m building these 2 items. I’d really like to build something that my daughter will have when she gets married...

I'm a dad!

2544 days ago by jstewart | 24 comments »

I don’t have much time to post this, so it will be short. Two days ago, on August 8th, I became a father. My beautiful wife gave birth (via C-section) to a beautiful baby girl, Molly Hannah. She was only 19 inches long but a healthy 9 lbs 3.6 ounces. So, I have a good excuse for missing the DeCou LumberJock picnic. I’ve got to get back to the hospital now. I’ll post some photos on Flickr later on. (I know this isn’t about woodworking at all. Sue me.)
