New to posting on lumberjocks, decided i would go back and post some of my projects I have done. Instead of flooding lumberjocks, I think ill post a few of my projects up front then spread the rest out over the next few months.
This is a co-sleeper I made for my last daughter (co-sleeper is a 3 sided crib that hooks to the bed as kind of a bed extension). the sides are made out of cherry with sapele legs. connected the legs to the sides with interlocking through tendons, not really sure how this will work over time, but its survived a year so far without any movement issues (thought I live in northern California so that may help too).
This was my first attempt at relief carving, happy with the way it turned out, borrowed the Celtic tree and the cat from google search, but free hand the rest of the trees on there (the most impressive thing on here if you know about my artistic ability). Used malachite to do a crush stone inlay for the Celtic tree’s leafs.
Fortunately my wife is skilled enough enough to make a custom mattress for it and so far it has been nice, sturdy and after a year of use…maybe slept in 3 times, oh well the thought was nice :D.
