Finally! My youngest daughter’s first baby will have a place to sleep now. This one is made from Red Gum with Brazilian Tigerwood (goncalo alves) accents. It’s the same plan that I used for the three previous ones. Now off to different projects….
It’s likely to be the last project that I willingly do with red gum, though. The wood finishes beautifully and has a lot of rich grain variation, but it’s very brittle and unforgiving. When I do a woodworking project I need a lot of forgiveness, too, and not just because of my language.
