This is for my newest Grand child. Addision Rose of Texas, born 11/6/08. Yea I know I’m just just a little late. Its made out of Walnut with UV Maple interiors. Solid maple drawer box’s with Blum motion under mount slides. The finish is die stain and laquer.

Thanks to my Daughter and Son-in-law for their love and understanding and most of all their patience (since I’m a little late). And a special thanks for my newest Grand Daughter, she’s a dandy!


Thanks for having a look!

This piece turned out brilliant! You did a great job. I look forward to seeing the crib. Everything except that big scratch in the bottom right corner is outstanding. J/K. Nice work.

We just got through loading them up and sending them on their way home. Now I need to get finish on the crib and get it hauled down there too.

Thanks to everyone!

Absolutely beautiful. One question, how many years have you devoted to woodworking to have such skills?
