That’s got to be the granddaddy of all cribs! (But I would not have expected any less from you, Les.) :-)

Les, I have to agree with Arianna. Very beautiful is an understatement and the crib looks nice too. :)

For a “client” this important I would not have expected anything less than your best effort, which you did.

Great job.

By the way, unless I missed it, did you ever post your finishing routine for the crib?

It looks flawless.

Thanks again for allowing us to share in this.

Les – it is one gorgeous piece. seeing the pieces along the way didn’t do justice to how nice the final piece looks.
